honest words

shall i say it blatantly

be blunt and ruthless

wrathfully honest

reservations cast aside?

my business is words

but i don’t know how to say

something still unresolved

within me like this is

the task of saying it

like the issue itself

is problematic and

annoys me to no end

when i need the words

to explain myself

and they won’t come

how can i say it?

some things i must

say and some i should

refrain from saying

i know this, i do

i will be quite honest

i’ve fallen easily before

now i fight and i prickle

only be honest with me

i’m far from fragile

but my shell is safe

and i will put it up

if i need shielding

maybe i misunderstand

misapprehensions amiss

might i be mistaken?

i certainly hope so

these are my words

cautious and caustic

bashful and blatant

keep them in mind

  1. It seems that the only thing missing
    is the right combination of words
    and I spend my days reaching towards them
    finding gems and jewels and gold

    but the real treasure I haven’t found yet
    and it is the only thing that will save me.
