On Words and Love

my heart smiles
so broadly
my lips
cannot follow

Love is
mute
it cannot speak

in its fullness
Love is
ineffable
inexpressible
beyond language

a fire
burning deep
burning bright

hidden from
fleshly sight

every mystic’s
true delight

i wish to speak
of Love

yet words
are not
enough

a small
pail
cannot contain
the ocean

so do
words
cannot express
Love
