“Hear the tragedy in my words
See tears flow from my pen
A poetic discourse sprawling free
As I’m feeling fragile once again

Dark ink crawls across the page
Revealing emotions I refuse to feel
Black splashes of truth from the ether
Preventing denial of the real

Chinks in the armor released by rhyme
Opening the valve to feelings unleashed
Spilled onto the paper without obstruction
Poetry responsible for defenses breached

No stopping or containing the lines
Released from within unbidden
So as you read my verbalized pain
Recall this was meant to stay hidden”
