we use them anyway

use your words,
they say. but even
words wish they
weren’t manipulated
in such a way
to make one stay –
to sleep on someone’s
lies which cover up
yesterday’s mistakes;
instead of taking out
the knife, letting bleed out
the real truths, the real vulnerabilities
hidden in the breaths
we take quietly, and gulp down
into our stomaches, every day

One response to we use them anyway
