Prisoner of Words

Love-you-Art mr wallpaper freeThey held each other close
Like a blanket of stars within the sky.
She wanted to tell him of her love
But her words were like prisoners
Held down under her tongue
Unable to escape beyond her lips.

As he released her warm body
His presence faded
Into the cold mist of the evening.
Her words melted and flowed
Down into her heart.
And the only thoughts
That escaped her mind
Was that she loved him a long time ago.
