The Conversations Left Unsaid


It hits

Sometimes

And I, I am disarmed

Unworded, if you will


The conversations that are impossible

That I cannot utter

That I do not say


Words

God, I'm made of words

Full of them

They bubble over any other time

But now


Faced with you, I remain silent.

The feelings are too big

Overwhelming

They tie my tongue in

Knot and close my throat


If I speak

I will choke

Make it worse

And if I don't speak

What then?


The truth is that

There are no words

Not for what stands between us

Only hurt

Misunderstanding


And...


Silence
