they say it’s good to talk
get it off your mind
I don’t know
who does one turn to
to confide
the worries churning inside
your guts burning
turning your mind
into jelly
you can’t think straight
can’t string together
your thoughts your words
and then if you say it
it may really happen
like before
the fear you fear above all else
bury it
suppress it
let it go
say it isn’t so
then it isn’t
then it can’t be
then it won’t ever be
best keep it to yourself
don’t let anyone know

Gosh, don’t know what got into me, two new poems in one day, this and the next post… I must have something on my mind. Shhhhhh….It’s strange when something disturbs you and you just can’t, you can’t say the words, so somehow you leave faint clues that something bothers you and maybe hope someone, not just anyone, but someone special will pick up on it, because it’s too awful to spell it out in black and white or voice your fears out loud, but if someone asks, just maybe, then maybe would you… but they don’t, they don’t see or maybe they do, but they are afraid to ask or they simply don’t care enough… or maybe it’s better that way, left unsaid. I don’t know.

troubles written over face
feels out of place
done nothing wrong
no disgraceexpressions… words
in black and white
don’t seem to come out right
lack meaning
come back to bite

innuendo… nuance
say its fine
but, not really
if someone cares to read
between the lines

can’t blurt it out
gives subtle hints
that all’s not well
unspotted or plain ignored
cannot tell

illusion… allusion
written in a body language
and words unsaid
a subliminal message
of life and death
