Sweeter

would my words
sound sweeter if
I seemed beautiful
to you

would they make
more sense
if I said them
like you do

would my voice
its pitch and timbre
be enough
to woo you

or would it be best
to recruit the help
of magic
some voodoo

is there some
portal or
some secret entrance
to walk through

to gain your
trust in
whatever wisdom
I use to
write the lines
the pain
the smiles
that come too

or do I toss
these phrases to the
void of varying shades
of blue

will my heart
be lost to decay
and time
with no value

does all of this
mean nothing
though I try
for it not to

does my skin stop you

does this race
place
and politics
halt you

are you afraid I’ll try
and top you

or that I’ll get so frustrated
I’ll drop you

or is it
simply
that because you can’t see me
it all falls through

so

again

I’ll ask you

would my words
sound sweeter
if I seemed beautiful
to you
