words

i string words together
not for nothingĀ 
that i can find myself
when i get lostĀ 
in the madness of
this world

telling

telling was the night upon the day

long and hot and humid until

the end

the night and
     like a shot it shut
                         you down

i took you to the spot
where all the revelry
was muted

distant

the
telling you how i
truly felt without
a word
