Words drop heavy from your mouth

A crack

Or two or three

On stained tiles


Words wriggle to my feet

Stick to them

Like I stick to you

Like he sticks to the idea of you

Like you stick to sadness


Your arms fall on empty space

We both have no one to hold


But my tears hold me

Hold me in sadness

Free me in relief


They slide down my bare skin


I wear too little

Show too much

Because the more I show

The more likely love is


Something has to click


Using my body

Because words feel too much

Words know too much


My tears are my words

Words that I speak to no one but myself


Am I no one?

Because I can’t hear them anymore
