Love and Words

_______________

company

        __

Had I another

head

to sit on my shoulders

and keep this one company,

I should think I would speak

more softly,

and with more ease.


For before my lips

were filled with words,

my ears

would have been filled

with advice,

for they would have heard

more than just one thing.


Too often, 

I speak as if

the conversation had been

going on for some time.

Yet, our meeting has only just begun.


And my poor,

lonely set of ears,

have heard only the answers

you already gave

to questions

not even aired.


Had I another head, 

to sit on my shoulders

and keep this one company - 

I think, 

I think the world

would be a little

easier,

for me.
