For once, speechless.
As always, senseless.
Breathless
In your presence.
Lacking vocal skills.
Fainting against my will.
It’s not fair, the way you make me feel
As though I’m a child held still.
So, thank you Mr. Fear.
You in all your dark clothing, your voice so shrill,
Drowning out the song of a whippoorwill.
