Run Out Of Words


I’ve run out of words to describe you,

colors to pin to your eyes

Adverbs to scrawl about how you talked to me,

sentences like waterfalls


Paragraphs to paint everything about us,

everything about the nights we spent


I’m trying of trying

to crush a whole sky of emotions into letters


It’s a spectrum

Until now I’ve felt just enough to pour out countless songs,

spell out how the others made me sway


But now you’ve made me fall and

I feel too fucking much

and a fist is too busy crushing my heart

to ever let the words out again.
