Behind the words Location Somewhere Behind the bold words And italicized linesLies a bold girl>With a crooked mind. Behind my pulsing adjectivesAnd breathing verbsIs a beating heartAnd contracting lungs. Behind the scratched out linesWere words meant to go unseenLike the words left unsaidAnd the actions left undone. Somewhere behind my wordsYou’ll find me. You just have to look.
