a heart for words

she was still new to the world
big eyes and a big heart
and already understood that no one cared
so she did the caring for them

everyone's words slid out smoothly,
water on oil,
but hers stuck together, like glue,
without a question,
so she stuttered out her kind words,
even though they ignored the words
and remembered the halting, quiet voice 

but they took, and took, and took
and never gave back
and so her heart,
that wide open door,
closed, slowly,
like the glue that once shut her mouth

she traded one for the other
a heart for words
words for a heart
and stuck like glue
to what everyone else said
and not to what her heart once knew
