Hold Control

There is no control
I can place to stop feelings,
I feel, when we speak,
What I want is transparent,
Yet it never fades away.
I belay my tongue
Short of saying how I feel,
Not trusting in me
Because the past did not go
According to my best plans.
Still, I harbor hope,
And believe love does exist
Even as I wait.
