poem from Flinch

I came across this poem of mine today and thought I'd share it.

forever & always

there are words
too big; we live them
without speaking out loud/
they fit tight like bands
to fingers,
they hold together
against gravity/
making smooth spots
under their meanings;
leaving marks when they
are taken away/

and so we wear them;
around our heartbeats,
and in love’s
whispering eyes/

forever and always/
