I kick the curb
with untied shoelaces
finding it so easy to trip and fall,
over my words
that needlessly and thoughtlessly come out
in twos and threes
and sometimes entire phrases of worthless banter
meant to fill the void in this room that I find,
and so I attempt to fill it
with something--anything
to take my mind off the pit in my stomach
and the ache in my heart
