Words fail me

rose with book

Erudite and slick

Eloquent, sun-tanned voice

Yet words fail me still

                   ~

To declare the fact

That I have fallen in love

Raising a fever

                ~

All words leave me now

Dumbstruck and hypnotized

I cannot convey

              ~

My feelings for you

Except in the clarity,

The simplicity of saying:

               ~

         I love you
