Am restless most times, with insomnia in the mix
it happens both day and night,
I don’t stop seeing you even when you are not with me or even near me.
As you must have noticed am very shy,
so am always practicing what I would say to you
If we like ever met face to face alone, preferably
since I can do some little writing better than I speak
write all that I wish and feel and please and want and,
which is harder by mouth
all the beautiful things in every sense
would make me mute, without speech
as though I was born that way.
That’s why I try to write all the time
so as to convey my deepest of feelings for you
