words

at times they overcome me
like a raging river they
knock me down fill my
nose and ears and mouth
so that I cannot breath

other times they sit
bleeding at a distance
taunting me with their pain
mocking me to catch them
and make them coherent

on clear days when the fog
lifts and nothing near me
makes my heart harden I grab
the words lovingly and lay
them down in a sentence
