Poetry: Tonight’s Mood

I held out my hand, but there wasn’t an answering grasp

For mouths that are quick to express love

The mind recoils even as the words form

They are a hollow sound

Bereft of impact when thrown carelessly

Callously burning the root of the tongue

Which treacherously allows them to escape

To end its own misery by spilling them out

And polluting everything they touch

  1. 😢 unfortunately, I can also relate to that. But in my case, I was just plain stupid and desperate attention/affection/love. But I was confusing love with lust. And other ridiculousness.
