    :uhh:
    I decided to put some words down on paper
    Let my pen get some exercise, instead of my mouth
    Which, apparently doesn’t seem to get along with my mind sometimes
    I think some signals misfired, or maybe some crossed wires
    Prohibited me from clear communication
    There’s this age-old conflict between what your brain thinks and what comes out of your mouth
    And let’s not even go there if the heart is involved, instigating everything
    It seems strange to me, that these malfunctions only occur when I’m near you
    Maybe it’s a chemical reaction
    From your pheromones of attraction,
    That causes my heart and my nether regions contractions
    It’s such a distraction ‘cuz I can only concentrate on instant satisfaction
    And there’s only a fraction of a second between thought and speech
    Because once it’s said or done, there can be no retraction
    Whew! See what I be going through?
    I guess my pen isn’t in as good as shape as I thought
    Because this explanation is long and drawn out
    But now I’m at the crux of what this is about
    Look, this is really, really hard for me
    But I wanted to tell you…I’m sorry
    Well, that wasn’t as bad as I expected
    Now can we have some make-up sex?

    When it comes to speaking from the heart to the heart of your love, you're quite correct, the words get all confused. The ending of your scribe made me smile. Such truth, and so creatively posed poetess.

    I learned a long time ago ...that, when the heart has something to say...the mouth lose all control.
    now, on the last two lines, which is speaking ...
    the heart, mouth or pen :?:
    I like the piece poet, keep them comming.
