One Word

I dare not say it,

for the word, upon meeting the outside world, crumbles and shatters

made finite…mortal

when pierced by pain

bleeds and dies

Instead, I will speak in memories

of tears and laughter, of our arms about each other

on our best days and our very worst

And you shall know my meaning, though I dare not speak it

but keep it safe and ever-lasting,

nestled in my heart
