Words Become Lessons I Will Learn

You love and loathe her/him simultaneously. So if s/he is such a snake or a wolf, or the ultimate deceiver, why are you still there? Walk away. They wont change because they are selfish. They want their cake and eat it too. It’s easy to always think of only herself/his self, which makes it easier to think less and less about you while you think more and more about him/her.

I read your text again today.
Your words kiss the boundaries of being,
Scream your soul’s conversation,
Say to me, “I am here”,
Even when you are not.

But, they are only words;
I have heard a surfeit of them,
As well as your breathy vows
And that staccato sotto voce
Declaring in my ear you are mine!

No words carry the same meaning.

You stumbled through my sentences
While someone else lay enjoying
The presence of your heart
And spoke to you in an
Unknown lover’s language.

But I find your words are
A wondrous and rare thing,
So I keep them in a small machine
To remind me they are as mechanical
As the small box that plays them back to me.

No words carry the same meaning.
