My words are shattered on my tongue
Slicing my gums
Too afraid to swallow
But the words are broken
Will not come out
They cut up my insides
Because I have not let them out
And the blunt force
Of her words
Has shattered
The fragile words
In my mouth
Her words have hit me
Like a brick wall
Or a breaking wave
Throwing me backwards
And shattering
My words
Which so long to come out
To stop her
From shattering
Those words
On the tongues
Of others.
