too late

I give up on love
Swallowing it whole
A hot stone
Burning soft as it goes down

My too late words
Squirm in stunted currents
Stolen oceans
Steamed dry by sun

My too late love
With nowhere to go
Buries the mud
With the weight of the world

All the words I have
Fall to surface
I love you too
