"These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder, Which as they kiss, consume." -William Shakespere (Romeo and Juliet)

What I meant to say was silent,
without a single word.
Not loud and wow and to the point,
A chirpy little bird.
To keep it in my stomache,
not let it pass my longue.
Not dance around and carelessly,
freefall off my tongue.
It hopped across the table,
bugging everyone in sight.
They turned and met my eyeballs,
with little to no delight.
I tried and tried to catch him,
but the damage was already done.
But relief washed my heart out,
as I realized I was wrong.
For how I wanted things to be,
had been there all along.
The things I needed to say,
hadn't escaped my teeth.
There really was no reasoning for seeth.
But everything was not as great as I intented it to be.
For even if my heart was safe,
was it really, truly me?

For anyone who has ever wanted to speak. But couldn't get the courage or didn't have the chance to say what you were thinking and get your ideas out on the table.

I like this. It has life to it. It seems almost like personification to me.
