Speak Not ~ Spoken Word Poem

Speak not to me of love,
But of friendship so
“love” seems overrated

Speak not to me of love,
But of laughter so wide and deep and Bursting
It hurts to be that happy

Speak not to me of love,
But of tangible uncertainty
Plabable ambiguity

Because when push comes to shove and you’re sure that your in love
Something always comes along to show you that you are not.

It wasnt “Meant to be”
He was not your “soul-mate”
It wasn’t “destiny”

Speak not to me of love,
But of quiet hope.

A seed of possibility resurrected from a graveyard
Speak not to me of love,
Speak not

Instead
Just breathe
And one day
When we are older and wiser
Our hearts much calmer
We will find each other
And speak of those things
Called love.
