Random Poem:

If We Could Speak
Mellows

Legs and feet are numb.
 1
I walk on ice, tongues
 2
 
 
cut off. We will not speak
 3
words. Our eyes
 4
 
 
stare as stone. Fixated,
 5
frozen pupils, daggers
 6
 
 
of our fate as friends.
 7
Our sterile tongues
 8
 
 
cut off. We cannot speak
 9
words. We cannot speak
 10
 
 
at all because pride
 11
is better than friends; always
 12
 
 
easier to be firm than
 13
crumble into an apology.
 14
 
 
to let go, wouldn't you say?
 15
Oh, only if we could speak.
 16
