Ineffable

Everything I feel is an ineffable

I mean there are countless words in the English language

Libraries full of dictionaries and thesauruses

But what about the things that there are no words for?

Like the way my voice box slams shut and all I can hear is static

And my heart sits in my throat as I cough it up onto the coffee table

Whilst I am sitting with a one hour brunch friend

Or when the air is so dense

I roll a cigarette in order to breathe

And I can still smell you on my fingers from when I fucked you earlier

Or the way you can have whole conversations in silence

Or the fact that speaking the three words ‘I am sad’

Does not justify a fucking thing
