Unable to Speak

Zip you lips
Throw away the key
My will to speak
Lost along with it
I’ve searched
Every quiet corner
And dark room
But I’ve gone so long
It seems I’ve forgotten
Where I’ve hidden my voice

My lips feel stitched together
With invisible thread
Don’t remember choosing this
Thought I know I have
I cannot tell
But I can show
You’re listening
But not watching
How can I tell you
Im in too deep

Afraid to open up
Afraid what will come out
Afraid you’ll never know
Too shy and untrusted
You’ll never understand
Hide away
Before embarrassment seeks
Wanting to speak
Knowing I wont

Lost and lonely
You’ll find me
If you can learn by watching
I’ll teach you everything
Then maybe you’ll give me your voice
And you can listen
