Expl.

Updated: Dec 10, 2020


What one does not say

Echoes within

Builds like amplifier feedback

And comes out changed


What such a one as I

Swallow in retraction

To nurse and perfect

Till silence owns me


How long have I avoided you

Truth

You who lingers upon my tongue

And finger tips


Who I know but shush

So no consequences face me

Oppressed by fear

Pressurized by need


Building in anxiety

As good things distort

And all for the sake

Of an irrefutable retort


Here is to public failure

In a dangerous world

That has been and will

Continue to bleed

And be bled


And here is to my place in it

Despite what I may not know

Despite what I may not be

For I must use these breaths

Until they leave me
