.every stone.

i have a lot to say.
i try to keep my mouth shut every day
afraid to trip someone up or slash someone's tires.
the power of the words that hide behind these lips
is no longer lost on me.
i know the damage they can do.
i know the pain these tiny words can cause.
help me.
help me to know how to use them.
help me craft them.
help me speak.


i layed my blanket down
and slept ontop of your heart.
sweet dreams washed over me
as your beats came and went.

when i awoke you were gone.
now i am a refugee.
