Words began by tumbling across your heart,
They stomp around in an arrogant, flaring rage,
They boil and brew the letters within themselves;
Words began by breaking out of their cage.
They try to find a way to climb to lips,
They stutter as they struggle in their path.
They clog your throat, hurrying in their quest,
Words cannot contain this untamed wrath.
The other words have broken down already,
They froze because they knew not what to do -
Melting into pieces of tiny tears,
Confused about which bits of them are true.
Some have risen from sweet memories of love,
Moments that are cherished by your heart.
Hidden in deeper corners than your thoughts
These words, too, finally begin to depart.
They walk in darkness, fly across,
They stumble in each other's ways,
They forget why they were formed at all
In this unsolvable maze.
They all arise, they rise, they rise.
Until they reach your eyes
One by one, they begin to fall.
Your lips could not bear them, so,
Your eyes have said it all.
