  • This silence moves (kills) me.
    Words are forgettable.
    However there are two
    that I can't seem to shake.

    I asked someone for a partial
    lobotomy of just those
    two words.
    I was about to compromise
    with offering to sacrifice
    an entire sentence.
    I couldn't find the strength.

    I couldn't find the strength
    in me to lose more than
    what's been taken.
    I can't tell the difference any more.

    This indifference
    overwhelms me.
    Your moves seduce (kill) me.

    I reached my hand out
    of my bedroom window
    to grasp a handful of wind;
    have you ever tried grabbing
    at air?
