Life's about making mistakes and trying to learn from them, most people don't learn from their mistakes the first time they make them, but that's what friends are for. They take your hand and help you think clearly

It’s clinging to the emptiness;
It’s staining the blackest of pits;
Filling the void within myself.

If only to keep me safe inside
Not a word will escape these lips
Even after we meet once more.

I know it’s wrong to lock them up
These words, these feelings
That hide deep inside.

‘Take a chance’ I think again,
Another year gone and out the door…

My words are paralyzed,
Stuck on my tongue,
Choking me on the inside.

My lips keep moving,
But nothing comes out.
My tongue keeps dancing
With no notes to carry.

I want these feelings to fade away.
No more do I want them spewing out,
So if I have to, I will indeed
Take it upon myself to keep quiet.
To lull my words in your presence;
To hinder my tongue’s dancing ;
To lock my mouth forever at your sight.

But I’m sure you’ve never noticed
Why I stripped my words to emptiness
I’m sure you’ll never notice that I remain as I am
Because you remain as you are
And fear to speak sweet blissful words towards me…

The author's comments:
written during Christmas break after I saw my best friend... I went to see her to tell all these sweet words just to find out she invited someone else to be there and I couldn't tell her what I wanted to say (yeah, I know I should just suck it up)
