Fear Mute

The words linger on my lips
Fear holding them in place
I hesitate for too long
The moment to say them gone
Unspoken conversation
Plays repeatedly in my head
Each time adjusted and tweaked
I relive the possibilities
Often once fear is defeated
The time spent talking to myself
Reveals itself to be wasted
The consultation goes nothing
Like anything that I thought
Other times fear wins
And I leave it all unsaid
Left with a choice to make
Forget it and move forward
Or self-torture ringing on
