Any Words

For all the smart words

that refuse to form

and fall passionately

from the curves of my lips

for any words

________

Profound or witty

anything to amaze you

but its all just nonsense

standard hello, typical goodbye

________

I push away

and you label me a tease

a flaw so fatal and deceptive

if it were ever one thing

it was that I could never get close to you

________

All I have are these pictures

and the lines you typed late last night

my skin being what’s holding me in

stranded, intimidated by your shadow
