Why can't you see ?

Thu, 05/16/2019 - 14:00 -- Ydom

There was a time when I was so quiet
The silence it came from the fear of a riot
Occuring so fast and caused by my blast
Of words I couldn't contain
For if they remained
Inside me the same
As they had for years on end
It would cause a bend
In my will to remain
Within this terrain
Of breathing without really living
For being alive doesn't mean you haven't died
Inside me remains only tears and deep pains
Memories of who I once was
Without him inside
whispering words that reside
Within me
As deep as her lies
That kept me from saying
He hurt me it wasn't playing
