Opal Daydream

We stretched our words
wound them between our fingers
and around our throats,
made promises we couldn’t keep
and sang our lies like lullabies
that we found ourselves drowning in.

We laughed away our biting fears
and drenched ourselves in comforts:
in the noise of our breath,
the beat of our hearts,
and then, we bathed in the silence
we found was loudest of all.
