your mouth has lost its splendid curve
perfectly lopsided
like broken tracks of tired trains
stuck horizontally

the fuzzy warmth of a spring day
used to spring from your lips
damaged from silently screaming
fire so hot your words cease

what secret do you hide from me?
your lips pressed tightly closed
they must be speckled with bruises
tongue-tied from fear of harm

eyes cry because cause dies
they hold my gaze then flit away
i watch you cut all ties
snatched by the sting of unkempt words

the crinkled corners of your eyes
who has kept them hidden?
they too want to be forgotten
i watch you slip away

yet silence tends to seize
the mere attempts of the condemned
will you ever forgive
emotions turned emotionless?
