Only Skimming the Surface

the words don't come
and so it's only halfway
part of a thought
fraction of a dream
conversation caught in my throat
because I want to tell the whole story
not the cliff notes
hitting the high points misses the depth
but the truth is more than I can say
fathomless even where I dip a toe
so that drinking it in would drown you
only sips that catch in my throat
