Mute

I saw you.
My mouth opened, to call your name,
To tell you to stay,
To tell you how much I need you.
But nothing came out.
The words were so heavy,
Too heavy to be carried out of my chest.
It was too much of a load to carry for the air exhaled.
It came out muted.
The air broke free through my open mouth,
Abandoning my heavy words behind.
You’ll never hear them.
