Speak

Like a guppy with flapping lips
Gathering air and blowing bubbles
Building gumption to release
Words lodged in my body
Festering with toxic spread
Stifling and infecting into physical
Manifestation of the unspoken
Inconspicuous wallflower
Dying from the inside
Fear suppressed into a silence
Slowly
Killing
Spark fading
Life ebbing
Floating above the ground
In lost and purposeless confusion
The cure
Wings on the truth of my soul
Opening the door to the cage
I have locked it in
And allowing it to fly free
