Sometimes

Sometimes
There aren't words
(ever)
So during those (some)times
When the magnetic letters on the refrigerator can't express (your) thoughts
Because the words you want
Aren't (real) words
The eyes will hold
A smothering blanket of emotion
Hoping (without hope)
That if they spill over
You might (maybe) understand
