WAITING ON WORDS

DID EVERYONE
FORGET?
WHERE DID IT
GO?

I SEE SMILES
RUNNING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
RUNNING FROM LAST NIGHT
AWAY FROM THE REGRET...

WHY WON’T THEY SAY
WHAT HAPPENED
THAT DAY?
WHEN
WE FOUGHT AND LIED
WHEN OUR WORDS WERE WEAPONS
WHEN WE CHEATED AND CRIED
SO HOW CAN IT ALL

HIDE?
I KNOW
IT HAPPENED.

NOW THEY SAY WHAT IS NECESSARY.
AND I RESPOND HOW I SHOULD.
USELESS TALK, A HOLLOW GLANCE, VACANT LAUGHTER
AND THEN A CHANCE
FOR ME TO SAY WHAT NO ONE ELSE WOULD…

NO FACE I SEE
CAN FACE EACH OTHER
HONESTLY.
EXCEPT ME.

MY LIPS PURSE TO POUR OUT
WHAT EVERYONE DARES NOT SAY ABOUT
HOPING IT’LL CAUSE A SHOUT
OF TRUTH FROM EVERYONE ELSE AROUND
THE WALLS WILL BREAK
REALITY REIGN
AND WE CAN TALK THE TRUTH AGAIN...

BUT I DON’T. I CAN’T SAY. BECAUSE IT MAY NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY.
