there were secrets


underneath her words.

you noticed them in her stutters

they made her tongue heavy

ate at her words

made them fragmented.

you heard them

in her silence


like leaves

in wayward wind.

you wondered

tracing her cracked lips

if they dried her out

made it hard to breath.

you saw them

past the warmth

of her eyes

a ghostly grey distance

that seemed sometimes

to blur her sight

make her unfocused

like the world

was less real

then her secrets.
