"Another over-elaborate way of saying something" by Brody McVittie


There was something you said
once
and
without saying anything at all, really;

something said that stayed
long after you did;

something said, and sadly
with your eyes and the wild in them
and without your lips and the words between them;

something that sounded
sweetly
and in passing,
something like

"I believe in you"

when no one else would or could or, I guess
even should;

so I just want you to know
that every word I ever wrote
and every word I ever will

is really just my round-about way of saying
something like
‘Thanks.’
