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
