'She Tells Me: Words Are Useless' - Poem by A.j. Binash

I am not asking
To borrow dimples
Wondering…
Could I borrow teeth?

I need a glint
To go with my lips. To dry my words
When breathing.

Exhale
After question.

Just air remains
Between the inches
Of our lips.

I have been walking on words
Since we met.

Stepping on letters
Breaking like glass.

If tomorrow persists

I’ll stand mute.

Let the words
Breathe for themselves.
