Out of Words

It’s national poetry month, and while we are already a few days in, I wanted to jump in and start trying to write a poem a day. I’ll be posting a few back to back to get myself on schedule.

i’m out of words
i open my mouth
to speak
to scream

a sense of futility
expands in my throat
strangles my thoughts
and leaves me
empty
