What Words Don’t Say


my best friends
Spring blooms
in love’s sunshine
Bursting with emotion
saturated with feelings
they burst through the heart
cavort in the blood
tremble on my lips

my worst enemies
Clinging to my lips
they don’t seek
to soar on the wind
glide on the breeze
scatter their perfume
Spurning the freedom
to reach your heart
they choose to wither
and die unspoken

I slash my veins
to release them
spilling their guts
on the page
The stain they leave
speaks to me
If you ever read them
I wonder if you will hear
what they don’t say
