deeper still

I’d like to grasp the words

that form behind my eyes

and sink deeper still

to a place I cannot reach

somewhere in my chest

where it’s warm and safe

but words are a flighty thing

devices meant to explain

what cannot be contained

in a code of shapes and sounds

so I’ll sit in silence

letting them sink deeper still
