Misunderstood Words



When you become aware

That you can no longer share

Your most inner thoughts

And closed away feelings

From many dealings

That has been brought

To the surface

And has shown itself

Balled up in fists

Unable to resist

Words going nowhere else

But in the wrong direction

Of where they needed to go

Arriving at unwanted correction

Instead of just letting

It be so

Being calm is a no show

Sharing no longer an option

Opting out of

The feelings conversation

A shutdown

Having grasped emotional dehydration

And just plain drained out

Trying to stay calm

When instead you truly want

To just scream and shout

And all that remains

Refuses to come about


Where writing comes alive
