Day 462: cypher

often time i am afraid of speaking out of turn
so you can find me on the corner of your tongue
in your silence
in the parts you've hidden
in the darkness
where everything is moist and beautiful
but terrified

remember the cyphers in the center of your kitchen
where we learned that speaking out of turn was the purpose
so we flung our songs from our bodies
through our fingertips
in our breaths
in our stories

there are secrets there in my silence
in my fear of speaking
in that insecurity
the parts i am afraid to show you,
so beautiful in your strength
so strong in your beauty
i want to be that kind of sure
in the middle of your kitchen
speaking out of turn
turning myself
inside out
from your speech
