she smelled like orchids

Posted to Poetry




she tried to say
she tried to say
-she smelled like orchids-
the words couldn't escape
she tried to say
she tried to say
-she smelled like orchids-
she tried to say
but she just grabbed on to his lapels
the words were caught in her vocal chords
they couldn't escape
so she moaned
and slobbered
and hiccoughed
but the words
they couldn't escape
she tried to say
-she smelled like orchids-
now she sits
and rocks
and moans
and slobbers to herself
because the words couldn't come
she just tried to say
-she smelled like orchids-
