100 Words, Linda Cerynik

100 Words

If I only had 100 words
To tell you how much I ...

They said don’t miss the train.
Frozen on the platform
Hands on head
Tailwind blasts my face.

They said don’t miss the plane.
Paralyzed on the tarmac
Sharp, pointed angle, 
Ascent,
And away to the clouds. 

If I only had 100 words 
To tell you how very much I ...

You sit across the worn oak 
Coffee steam swirling between
Us 
Wall clock ticks 
On tabletop I take your hand
Um
If I only had 100 words
I’d probably spill 97 
Trying to say
I love you.
