caged

deep within

vocal chords

rusty and stiff

from

Disuse.

face muscles frozen

Immobile

eyes hide

lips sealed

Try… they cajole reassuringly

Try…

jaws unlock

voice whispery

hesitating

words stumble

make no sense

emotion.


Over flooding – bursting

Too much to handle

Too much to say

Overflow

at the eyes –

cry…

silent once more

the soul is

caged – entrapped

deep within

Never to be free again…
