Tattoo in the Heart

If my heart was a poem

what would the words say

that hide so deeply?

What would they describe

if they were miraculously released

verse by verse,

adjectives dancing out of me

rhythmically composing

secrets of a silent soul?

I do not know for sure

but I am willing to bet

that love is written on each line

describing how I feel

full of sentiments


following comas, periods,

and pauses

until the words find you,

tattooing themselves into your heart

while becoming

one with me…

and all the mysteries lying inside

with things I cannot verbalize.
