,

 

language escapes me

words slip from my mouth

fugitive

 

I have no control

so I write

make words 

to hold them captive

 

utter madness

 

words are a haunting

my own fleeting

lost to silence

yours 

still with me

laying down with me

following me in the night

 

words leave their mark

 

language

where my body almost touches the world
