Speak of a Sin

To speak of you is like a sin
I see your eyes, your skin…you
But I speak of not for what you’d say
I’m so afraid to say it first
Then I think of what you’d say

It makes me want to say it less
For fear of you not there
Even as a friend
It’s just too much to bear

So I speak of none
And hear none back
I’d love to have you hear one day
But I cannot speak a sin
Yet I speak
But I speak of nothing

If my sin comes out
I’ll hear you too
I’ll speak no more…no less
It’s up to you
Just be true
