I wish I could open my mouth
and speak the words I feel.
They tear me up inside.
I will never heal.

My mouth, an open, speechless hole
fill my face.
My eyes cry and tears run
yet no words can exit my lips.

If I could form what I feel
Into sound
The feelings would exit my mouth
In a guttural, inhuman cry.

Maybe people would hear
And think me a savage
Or understand my pain
Yet run away

The only person that I would care
Would never hear it
Safe in your death
You wouldn’t hear my heart break

Please don’t leave me
Alone in my sadness
