The phone rings
I answer, hesitation in speaking
My blood boils
Your sweet adorable voice, spoils!
Am shaking if you only knew
My tongue, I chew
I almost said it………..
The touch of your hand, the handshake
Tranquility I lack
Till maybe I say it
No, you can’t sense it
Am on the verge
of dispelling this urge
My attempts on getting a hold of myself
More of disbelief
I almost said it…………..
Time hoots, its almost passing by
almost leaving me dry before I try
Death will beckon if I lose the chance
Still have composure as I steal a glance
Should I? Do I? May I?
Hard it is, but why?
I almost said it………….
Almost said I love you.
