official language of the heart,
Is the heart’s truth with fluff,
The marshmallow stuff.
Each thought that took blood and sweat vacate
without pain
but with a sweet and satisfying taste
Each formation of words become
revelations that live on the white pages.
The kind of revelations that
can creep up on you like
the darkness of the vanishing sun or
Hit you with a forceful blow.
