Vow Of Silence

I made my vow.
signed my oath.
my tongue twisted around the words
trapped at the base of my throat.
trembling.
waiting.
urging.
pushing.

i shuffle around
zombie like.
who knew silence had such an effect ?
you tell me you love me.
silence.
you tell me you want me.
silence.

I made my vow.
signed my oath.

Please dont be upset.
i did this for you.
to shield you from me.
dont you see ?
Im saving you from me.
Please understand.

you tell me you need me.
silence.
say something. you say.
silence.
i just shake my head.
i cant.

if i speak you wont like it.
this vow of silence i made was just for you.
i can see your eyes begging.
longing.
wanting.
yearning.
But i cant .

they hurt.
the words i mean.
they sting & burn.
moving around waiting to come out.
but i wont let them.
you wont like it.

the truth is overrated
but my love for you isnt.
im sorry. my eyes say.
but my mouth doesnt.
so you leave.
dont my mind says
but my mouth doesnt.

in the end
im left alone.
alone with my vow of silence
