please stop me
from saying another
godforsaken word
mute me
if only for a moment
cleanse my breath
let me consider
let me reconsider
your brains are just as
as your beauty is
and i'll tell you
i'm not afraid
but i realize
that your ears may
not quite be
as welcoming
as your smile
give me poison
but please
don't take away
the reason
cleanse my blood
because i don't want you to know
that you have me
biting my tongue off
and hiding my shaking hands
in wet pockets
thank you for
allowing me
to breathe
because i am quickly
forgetting how
i never know
when i've said too much
and there are grounds
in my coffee
