The lyrics

The lyrics were so sweet
They seemed to coat my tongue with honey
I swore the music would die without him
Until I realized that I have love

The words didn’t flow from pens
Ink dried before it ever reached page
Keystrokes shortened…delete backspace end
I swore the book would never be written
Manuscripts would burn without him
Until I realized that I have love

Spoken words became unshared thoughts
I st-st-stuttered
Mumbled….”hey bitch,  cat got your tongue?”
“No, love broke my spirit”, for a minute
I let him render me speechless
Begged for my former eloquence
Got it back when I realized that I have love

Words and thoughts had less value
without him
But I have love
I am love
I was love before him
I will be love when he has gone
And I will make love with my words again

“Who would like to hear me speak? “
