where our secrets go

ear drum to ear drum
transfer burdens through
each exhaled word.
the road will always
carry us, each breath
a choice. each whisper,
lava hardening over
our exposed skin.
there is a numbness in
silence that i have grown
to love more than the
loudest truths threatening
to break me into a mosaic
of i-told-you-so’s and
every time i contemplate
letting the words slip
from my lips i remember
they are stones fracturing
your obsidian heart.
i break the earth
and bury the words
in the crevices of
the burdened soil.
