Role Reversal

…and sometimes,
it is the words
that i push down
an unwritten abyss,

lest,
like an unfinished
glass of wine
they spill,
leaving a permanent
irreversible stain
of red,

lest,
they tarnish
the beauty
of a moment,
that needs
only to be savoured
then simply forgotten,

lest,
they create
a memory forever
that even if sought
by me to better,
continues to remain
the best.
