Look once, Speak once, but before you do: Think twice. Your Words, they burrow deep, like grimy, sharp-clawed mice. The syllables you say, nouns you don't mean,
"What is it that you don't like?" The words that haunt my every thought Longing to rush along my lips and spill out Filling in the crevaces of the space around me Words What do they mean
