Love Speaks

Love’s language
unfolds in pulsating stages
wrapped in frantic heartbeats,
in lips locked tight
and downward eyes,
this is how
love speaks


Love’s language
comes in silent phrases
and blushes across the cheek,
in smiles candid
and sideways glances,
this is how
love speaks


Love’s language
arrives confused and dazed
and voices whispering sweet,
in words unsaid
and words undressed,
this is how
love speaks


Love’s language
turns with the moon’s phases,
and promises secrets to keep,
during quiet spells
and through untimely Hells,
this is how
love speaks


Love’s language
passes through years without changes
and stays its course through weeks,
in mouths unsatisfied
by their own sighs,
this is how
love speaks.
