Just Words

I can easily recollect that night
When I was four miles from home
I saw a car wreck
The accordion car looked just like yours
And with that image
I thought of you

DEAD

And what I had said the night before

I couldn’t reach you by phone
At first my hands were shaky
Then they turned to stone
I drove the rest of the way home
Like a mannequin
With a voice on each shoulder

You’re being ridiculous

But what if…

When I saw your car in the driveway
I felt such a release of emotions
Half of me was laughing…See?
The other half wanted to cry

No sooner did the door make its shutting sound
Than you had turned around
To see me, quickly coming to you

I held you
Breathed you in
Ached
Smiled
Then just stared

What’s wrong baby?

Nothing
I shook my head
Kissed you
Changing the topic
With flirting hands

But that night I decided
As I turned to sleep
So pleased with your warmth in our bed

No matter the matter
Never again
Will I say

What I shouldn’t have said

Just Words
