A Restless Heart

caged! Pictures, Images and Photos

A Restless Heart

My heart is forever racing
ahead of the beat
pulsing within the cage
of my soul
Restless and waiting

Hidden eyes watch
the movement of your
hands as you talk
Longing to touch them
Your voice inside
of my head
listens for the meaning
behind your words
finding myself lost
within the silence
of all that is unspoken

"Yes, this is fun," I say,
when you ask
unsure of my feelings
once again
unsure of you
and your feelings

Your playful smile
touches upon the happiness
that lies dormant

"Yes, this is fun."
