    Song: "Butterflies Kisses" Goapele

    I don’t feel like talking anymore.
    I don’t feel like speaking words
    Made for misunderstanding
    I don’t feel like saying sweet things
    To make you feel sweet.
    I don’t feel like it.
    I don’t feel like doing anything
    But sensing you
    With my senses.
    No thinking
    Just feeling.
    Don’t feel like doing anything else.
    Don’t feel like saying
    I love you.
    Sound ain’t forever.
    Feeling love is forever.
    You won’t remember
    What I sounded like
    When I said it
    You will remember
    What it felt like.
    When you felt it…
    If you felt it…
    I have a feeling you did.

    And still I lay here
    Wanting to write
    Something profound
    Something so delicious
    It squirts in my mouth
    Full taste
    Full touch
    On my tongue
    Replacing words
    Not fit for the moment
    And it is her they wish they could describe.
    Words envious of her being
    Being no way used to her being.
    She is reduced
    And magnified
    To a sound
    A simple vibration
    That is felt
    And heard
    No words
    No room for pretentious education
    In the form of
    Useless vocabulary of the clever
    And lonely

    The loved needs no degree
    No diploma
    No certificate
    Of approval
    Of acceptance
    Need no validation
    No recommendation
    No words are even in this poem.
