pull my thoughts when you grab my hair
with your hands full of tangled chunks of
never spoken doubts.
i scream everything i hate about this life
sometimes loud or muffled,
and i carefully listen to heartbeats and short breaths that
speak more than a skeletal confession.
the only words worth saying are transferred from my tongue
when i swipe your lips so.
our conversations are beautiful.
that night you called me
and you poured yourself
for the first time
i didn’t say a word
but i listened
to your sobs in silence.
wanting to jump through the phone
by your side
and let your tears soak my shoulder.
but im writing this to let you know
i love you
more than anything
i love you,
