Words Unspoken

Dear you,



there are so many words i have left unspoken

i was scared to hear them said

it didn’t matter which heart was left broken

so long as mine remained whole



my silence leaves room for a thousand whispering voices

they haunt my dreams with their reproach

i am reminded of a million faulty choices

that held me back from speaking out



i can’t stop

can you hear them?

i must speak

do you understand them?



theyshouttheyscreamtheydemandtheyfightthey HURT!

theypinchtheybitetheytorturetheytormentthey WON’T STOP!

theyhisstheyspittheytastetheydevourthey NEVER END!



i can barely breathe



there are so many words i have left unspoken

it is too late for most of them

but there is still time for my silence to be broken

so i will simply say this



i’m sorry



maybe the whispers will quiet at last

don’t worry about me if they don’t

i’m finally free from the remains of my past

so i think i’ll be alright



there are still words left unspoken

but perhaps it is better that way

i am sorry now for the heart i left broken

perhaps you can forgive me one day



Sincerely, me
