How Could I Tell Her

written by: Tasos Kyrtasoglou

 

She said “I‘ve known you before,
that’s how I feel it”.
But I preferred not to respond,
my head bent to the floor.

How could I tell her
that I was
that salty tear in her eye,
the breeze that’s scattering
her perfume all around?

How could I tell her
that I was
the color red in tender lips,
the vein that pulses
in a neck so bright?

How could I tell her
that I was
a tiny dimple when she smiled,
the flare in hazel eyes
while she was dreaming?

How could I tell her
that I was
a gentle breathing in her sleep,
a mellow sigh when she thought
of other guys?

Things like these
could not be said.
My head bent to the floor.
I couldn’t stand to see her go
for one more time.
