Left Unsaid

February 25, 2014 | 3 Comments

I shrink back
Hide under
Run away

Chased by fear
Led by need
Shored-up by survival

The day’s upon me
Reckoning’s arrived
The response:

I stand aware
About-face
Witness to my plight

In the mirror
Fierce eyes
Bold heart

Behind the reflection
Tears well
Throat tightens

Strangled from the inside
By heartstrings
Trauma binds

A life eroded
By the strain
Of being myself

Tendons flare
Exposed neck
Balled fists

Mouth agape
I struggle
With all left unsaid

Write along with me!

Write along with me!

  1. OMG this is my day today. So many other days as well, but so much today. I’m debating about contacting the police with what might be helpful info, but it is going to put me directly in line of fire of my very violent ex. I’m torn between saying those right things and near unbearable fear.
    Thank you so much for putting words to my chaotic mind today.
