Soliloquy

I wish I knew where your words snuck in—

How their lackluster finish shifted my focus,
How their emotionless nature left me vulnerable, and
How their cold sterility soiled my senses for that short little while.

But when I find that word-sized hole
I’ll seal it up with regret and hope to God it scars.
I’ll need the reminder for your next, stupid soliloquy.
