Pursed Lips

Inside my pursed lips
I hold back laughter that would hurt
When you are trying so hard not to stumble
Over words that make me giddy inside

Inside my pursed lips
I hold back words that would sear
When my anger flashes quickly and hot

Inside my pursed lips
I hold back a sudden desire to French kiss
When I see you falling asleep beside me

Do not be cross when you see me
Press my lips so tightly together
I do not hold back the love I have for you
Inside my pursed lips
