my silence is deafening
it’s hurting me
choking me
it’s stifling and it’s hard to breathe
my heart is crying
soul is screaming
yearning to be heard
wishing to feel understood
if only my wounds could be caress
my insides cleared out, remains a stale dream
once I allow air to pass out, the control will be gone
every unspoken word will come flying out
it’s all pulsing through my veins
and with time it gets heavier
I have no way to unload
I must remain sealed
silence is keeping strong,
against my will.
