I Want to Talk You

I figured out our communication error
We don’t actually know how to talk
To each other, enjoy each other
Verbally, idea to idea, word to word
Because all we’ve ever done is make love
So now all I have to do is you
And me and us in conversational tones
Enjoy the flow and surge and ebb
Relax into breathless moments
Between jokes and stories
About you and me doing oral
