“Full”
KS 3/13/12
Arguing your point,
Your voice loud,
My ears open,
Your lips,
My mouth,
Your mouth is empty,
My mouth is full,

Sitting at the coffee shop,
Your eyes,
my hands,
your face,
my smile,
Your mouth is empty,
My mouth is full,

Asleep in bed,
Your breath,
My lungs,
Your sweat,
My back,
Your mouth is empty,
My mouth is full,

Outside, the sun shone bright today,
My words,
Your answer,
My truth,
Your belief
Your heart is full,
My mouth is empty…
