I try to write,
Write the words in my heart
Put my feelings to words.
Every time I try,
I come up short.
You hurt me
So many broken words my pen cannot make them whole.
They’re there in the air floating through my breath
I reach for them and they evaporate.
I see them in the water
Drowning in my tears
I dive in only to choke on them.
They’re smudged and stained.
Broken and scattered.
I try to write but my fingers cramp with the effort.
I try to speak but my voice won’t pass the words lodged in my throat.
These words are all I have but even they won’t do.
I wrapped them around you like a blanket.
These words were our cocoon
But these words won’t do any more
These words are no longer enough
You hurt me and took the words away
What can we say to make it better? Sorry……. Sorry?
