don't adorn your lips,
the tip of your tongue,
the back your mind
and the crevices of your heart,
with words left unsaid.
spill the unsaid iloveyous,
spill the compliments you bury
every day with gentle, subdued smiles.
spill your thoughts,
the ones you know will create ripples
and stir the creatures that seas hold.
don't let these words flourish like flowers...
for one day,
they will adapt and grow thorns,
and you'll choke on
but mere words.
