Cheri Speak

Are you listening?

Prisoner of Promise


My eyes, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot convey the wonder and mystery
the intensity of which I am certain you too are feeling.

My hands, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot draw you near with the gentle force of need
for fear you would pull away.

My mind, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot effectively convince with intelligent offerings
All the many reasons why.

My body, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot recklessly melt into your own
With all the sensation of passions urgent plea.

My heart, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot openly beat
With all the emotion contained.

My lips, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot utter the gentle words of love and reverence
Breathless in their desire to confess.

My soul, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot entwine with your own
to experience the promise of when two become one.

My life, a prisoner of my promise to you
Cannot be
All it was meant to be.

Now it's my turn to listen...
