Remember how those words danced across your tongue
Like a flower floating on water
The way it moved back and fourth
As if you were trying to savor every taste of the meaning
When it flew from your lips
My hands jumped in the air swinging
Like branches in a storm
Trying to grasp every peice of this phrase
If only I could have caught that beauty
Locked it away for nobody to see
Cared for it with all my soul
Fed it with every kiss my body was able to spare
If only I said it back
Remember the first time those words stumbled across my mouth
Broken up and harsh trying to pry its way
Through the gaps between my teeth
So new and confused like a child learning to walk
Stumbling one letter in front of the next
It fell out of my mouth and into your bloody palms
We stared at each other with empty eyes and shredded hearts
I love you was never enough
