The Words Slipped

April 28, 2009
The words slipped from your swollen lips,
Hitting the hollow of my chest.
I saw your cheeks, stained with tears
And broken bloodvessels,
And the half-eaten chocolate cake, forgotten
On the stovetop.
I didn’t know what to do but embrace,
Stand there awkwardly, your cheek pressed
To mine.
