Show and Tell

January 11, 2008
By Caitlin Mahoney, Shirley, MA

I can’t believe what I am saying
Do I say what I know you want to hear?
Do I say what I mean and tear your heart in two?

Prior to the reduction of your anger
I need to let you read my voice

Play the game with me and try to win me over
I don’t want to let you go
I have to share my heart

Please say you’ll stay
Even if you don’t like what I have to say

Show me your secret and I’ll tell you mine
I’ll go first

I want you to make me an offer I can’t refuse
Show me your love is mine and mine forever

Just for me and no one else
Don’t lose control and give up on me

Make me speak it every day
Show me with your actions and don’t say a word

Your silent voice
The sweetest thing I’ve ever heard
