I write when I'm nervous because I know how to hide in words.
Really, it's an abuse of skill and unfair
to be insincere.

Often I am nervous because you are;
when you're nervous you never say so
I say so, but act pretentious.

I hide behind words
qualifying what should go unsaid.

I can't stand it -

when there isn't a word
for what it feels like when we manage to be
around each other -

there is never a word
for that.
