my thoughts are screaming

loud enough

for all to hear.

I want you.

I need you.

I can't hold back

these feelings

inside me.

my mind yells at me,

but my heart says

"simmer down.

do not get ahead of yourself.

all in due time.

then,

it will all work out."

just like that.

calm.

quiet.

the screams

turn to hoarse whispers.

okay.

okay.

okay.

we will be,

okay,

if we just breathe...
