"If you know how you feel, and so clearly what you need to say, you'll know it. I don't think you should wait. I think you should speak now." -Taylor Swift


The words rose to the
Tip of my tongue
Piling and
piling
up
Into a big, towering jumble
Of letters.
I opened my mouth, pursed my
Lips, and the words slid
Forward--
only to be pushed right back--
The jumble of them--quite
A mile long--they all went
Unspoken as I
swallowed them
Back down into the
Depths and recesses of me where
All those words--a huge
Pile--remain forever--
Quiet--I-could've-but-I
Didn't--
Unspoken.

How you write this shows that you are really connected to this and it means something to you. I can relate to this poem a lot. So many things I should have said, but I didn't. I really love it. Keep writing!

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Wow, I really like the meter on this poem, it emphasizes the message so much. It's halting and hesitating just like the words. :)

Sis, you should read the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, if you haven't already. It is a really inspiring book, and a pretty easy read. It truly relates to this wonderfully written poem. Please sis KEEP WRITING AND NEVER STOP.
