I cannot talk, Mea Culpa
I follow the silence I listen and observe
Sometimes I write down my thoughts
But I just cannot talk
Not when you look so pretty anyway

I should speak up
Let you know at the very least
But I feel afraid The ugly me can offend the pretty you
So I play safe and risk nothing not even my loneliness
While still sneaking glances from the corner of my eye

I sigh and I try and I will always fail
Nothing ventured so nothing is gained
Cowardice makes for lousy lovers , that’s just me
Reticence though can make for better writers

Someday I will gather the courage to say hello
But by then, you will be long gone
