I have a feeling

Darling, I'm happy to see you
I'm happy I get to hear your voice say my name
Like it's a treasure you hold in a locket
because it lies close to your heart every time you put it on.
And I'm happy I get to hold you.
Like you're a piece of my heart that's never going to go away.
I have this feeling in my chest
That I'm trying to let burst out of me
like the aliens in that old movie I saw that one time.
But every time I try to say what's on my mind,
the VCR skips, and repeats.
I hear another I escape my lips,
another T,
another S
Like my brain's skipping a track on a CD,
and I can barely let the thought escape my lips when you pull me close
and I feel the sweet caress of your lips on my own
the wind chimes in my heart are picked up by a gust of wind
tinkling the chimes together in perfect harmony
And when we lock eyes I realize something,
that I'd take your eyes and preserve them in a jar
but that'd be taking it too far.
So I just stare,
and when you ask what I'm looking at I stutter and search for words
like a mumbling mad man searching for a purpose to his rambles
but I never have to worry about the words I say
because you always leave me speechless with a kiss
or a soft embrace
and when I finally find the right words to say
I hear them come from your lips
as if I was destined to be an echo thundering over a mountain range.
And the words tumbling over the trees are I love you
with every fiber of my being and every neuron in my body
and did you know
there are three trillion neurons in the brain alone?

This is the second piece I've submitted to Teen Ink. Poetry has always been something easy for me to write, so I thought I'd share the newest poem I had written. Enjoy.
