words

A Poem by Kirstin

i wish words would win over an unwilling heart
maybe they do, and mine are not worthy.

on paper, perhaps i persuade you toward affection
but when my mouth forms syllables, i clutter
the air with nervous cacophony.
i cannot express my feelings  in 
such short seconds.

on paper, i say that my heart
rockets round my ribcage
when you smile. 
in person, i smile and look away with a blush 
that writes its own poetry

my pen prefers bravery
my mouth prefers safety
