Words of Love

Words of love often suppressed
Kindness taken for granted, unexpressed
Presumption of thoughts, norms and dreams
Seems we no longer talk of schemes
Drifting along feather light
Lack of communication, lack of fight

We need to look closely, see the whole
Clean the windows, throw light on the soul
View, the other objectively, eschew control

Words of love often suppressed
Feelings of love only a guest
Are doors locked tight, welded shut
Will we live our lives, forever undercut
Viewing each other from a place unexposed
Not pushing the gate for a loving repose
Words of love often unexpressed
Relationship sunk into mindlessness
