full house

Letting words out of the cage

not so that they can be seen
and revered

but so they can breathe easily
for all chambers have been filled
with feelings for you.

I used to think
words could explain everything

until you planted
a plethora of feelings

leaving me


For February Prompts, ‘inexpressible notions’.

maybe pain is addictive 

what is pain,
but a vehicle for humbling feelings
to compare and contrast
with that of numbness
when (if)
the wound heals

who’s to say we really
left everything behind–
whose demons peek
from beneath buried past:
laughing, shouting
spreading another round of sorrow
for good measure
