drowning words

From his head

words stumble

past his mouth

and fill him up

from his feet.

They anchor him there.

Stuck.

Becoming rooted by

words unspoken

seeping from his bones.

Drowning in

the words.

Flowing from deep

within,

words pour

out of her

and surround him.

She is emptied

and alone.

And he

is still drowning

in the words.
