Feelings that I want to be honest about,
Feelings that you can get tangled up,
Feelings that become real
Once they have been pronounced,
Feelings that lie so helplessly
One on top of another,
Feelings – now in petals, tomorrow – in full flower,
Feelings – a flight of seagulls over the house,
Feelings – a combination of vowels,
Feelings as sketches, not a complete something,
Feelings – a few written pages
In a mouthful.
