words escape my fingertips

words escape my fingertips
jumbled and incoherent
listening to you
hearing you
flusters my reasoning
stop me if you can't understand
you stop me inside
each beat sweeter than heaven
fate has no hold over me
just you with one glance
just you with that smile
words escape my fingertips
elegant in confusion
expressing more than whispers
admitting more in silence
easy like a touch along the skin
you might know
you might feel the same
this hope drives me
skims through me like nothing else
while words escape my fingertips

I'm serious, go listen to that Jason Manns song "Crazy Love." And then check out Guthrie's song "Strong Hands." Just go.

checking out the new place
our backyard in a week
