Poems.

I suppose these are just little pieces of me, wrapped up in words.

The forgotten melodies of my mind.

80. For The Woman Who Goes Unwritten To

Wish I could love you enough to lie

And say

“Sometimes words are not big enough to express the things that drown them”

Translation: I love you

But it would be disingenuous of me to negate our negligence

With the pretence that it constituted something purer,

Or happier

 

So instead I will tell you that I am sorry

That this half-formed thing

Constructed from your womb

Cannot be grateful enough to negotiate the crevices

Of where our conversations don’t quite join up

 

And I’ll breathe this sorry

In the way I thank you for each lift to ballet lessons

Each ounce you help me to retrieve

Each starvelling tear you leech from me

Each good day you wish me

Each good day you will ask me for

Each finger you raise to close the gap

Between our two magnetic fields

 

“Sometimes words are not big enough to express the things that drown them”

Translation: I never meant to break the umbilical cord
