no words, a poem

I don’t have words
Not pretty ones
Nor ones that sting
Nor ones that feel like cardboard in my mouth
Nor clever, witty ones
Nor ones that rhyme with other ones
I don’t have words
Not sharp ones, nor dull ones
Nor words that are short
Nor long
Nor words that could mean different things
Nor words that I wish I hadn’t said
I don’t have words
Not courageous ones
Nor cowardous
Nor dismal, drippy words
Nor fulfilling, sunshiny ones
Nor ones that I use in place of the ones that I mean
Nor haunting, honest, authentic ones
I don’t have words
I only have this feeling, this moment,
And no words
