Many words

So many words left unsaid

Still gather and float

Around my head

Words left unspoken

For no known reason

Who were they trying to save?

Words that have choked me

For the fear of the

Damage they could inflict

Instead charred my throat

From the intensity

Of their heat

Words that should

Have been whispered

To connect our two souls

Just silently drifted off

In search of new goals

But if those words

Had been spoken then

Would they have changed a thing?

Your words became knives

Hurtling nothing but lies

Rendering anything I said

As worthless and futile


So many words

Were left unsaid…
