a noise

There is a noise I didn't hear lodged in my throat

I could feel it built and built but it never burst

getting heaver and heaver in my head

so much louder and louder in my mind 

if only I could scream it out I'd feel relieved 

only this noise is trapped in here

trapped in my chest

till I die, I fear.
