authenticity

speak words with no boundaries

tell me everything even if it’s nothing at all

let your actions be just as loud

so that when the cat has your tongue

i still know i am capable of making you purr

i’ll spend a lifetime searching for the words that fit you perfectly

and once you slip on that hand picked hello

you’ll know that everything in the before made sense

the time spent

only you could wear the words that slip off my tongue

fits in every curve

you fill every space

there is no room left for error

no typos

an occasional grammatical oversight

chalk it up to authenticity

sometimes i stutter

sometimes the words that leave my lips

aren’t the thoughts that fill my mind

sometimes self sabotage is the signature i leave on my love letters

chalk it up to authenticity
