I wish I could say these words 

As easily as the jokes I make.

I want to say them, I promise.

But they get stuck in my mouth

Lodged in the back of my throat

Stuttering and clawing as I try to pull them free.

Just three simple words.

I am yours.


I wish I could touch you freely 

Give you my body 

Without pausing or hesitating

Put myself in front of you saying:

"I am totally and completely yours."


I wish I could tell you that I love you

in such a way that you would have no doubts

about my sincerity.

Wrap you in my arms 

Meld our souls together

You are mine.

I am yours.


I wish I could draw you to me and keep you there

Safe from the world of hate around us

Everything I am is for you

My better half, my reason for life.

I am yours.
