Words You Can't Say

By Ame Lockheart

Just say the words

You seem to dread,

That might Take the last Of what strength

You

Might have.

Breath.

It can't be

That hard.

Can it?

Admitting to yourself,

Maybe you can really

Learn to live in

This twisted,

Unpredictable Reality.

So just say them.

The words that You can't say.

The fantasy world

You have made,

Just can't stay.

The dream-

Yet strangely surreal-

Have covered you,

you fight,

Yet you can't

Seem to face

The fact that you,

Just aren't strong

Enough to face

These words.

But you have to.

A struggle,

Fight,

Duel,

Just to say these

Words

You just can't say.
