Other times it lashes out like a toads tongue, frightfully fast and deadly accurate, with a loud thwack
Then I have a third tongue. The tongue of a serpent. The deadliest of the three.
I both love and loathe it.
For instance: My silver tongue has served me well for communicating, talking and giving speeches with clear concise language.
My toad tongue once proclaimed, at the end of a glorious silver tongued talk to the congregation " So Brothers and Sisters, Are you on high ground?" Thwack
But my serpent tongue. My serpent tongue is a weapon. It sniffs the air with a threatening hiss as it slides back and forth between my lips.
It can do insurmountable damage. It can snatch joy from the air and choke it with flames.
I promise. I do try to hold my serpent tongue.
Sometimes I am more successful than others.
Since meeting Hunna I have made a conscious effort to soften and calm my sometimes raging, often unpredictable and always emotional tongue.
He is my Jiminy Cricket conscience, calmly directing me to choose the right.
There is another thing that has been helping me.
I can write and write and everything I have felt flows onto the page, released through my fingers and not through my lips I can refine my thoughts.
Writing about when Hunna and I met has reminded me of great memories which I want to cherish and can now peruse and connect with whenever I like.
So, I've decided to continue with our journey... Because I had stalled somewhat because I am a romanticist.
Because the next chapter is raw and sometimes not romantic at all.
But I need to tell it.
From like to loke. from loke to love. From love and beyond.
It all needs to be said.
The wedding approaches.
