words

I didn’t use the right words

But they matched my feelings.

Instead of talking about how and why i felt

she provided statements of fact

as if that would help me

stop feeling.

I didn’t have the right words

But my emotions swirled anyway.

Instead of coaxing out the mess

she gave examples of the truth

as if that would help me

stop crying.

I went looking for the right words

But they were caught in my throat

Instead of coming out.

She asked for them

as if that would help me

stop hurting.

And then my words left entirely.
