I know what you want me to say
But I cannot speak the words
I cannot even write them
For saying them aloud
Or putting them on paper
Gives them meaning
And purpose
If they stay in my head
They exist only for me

I know what you want to hear
But I cannot say it
Will not write it
For fear 
The thoughts 
Through words
Will become real

  1. Think before speaking was an admonition of my mother's .... it applies here. Well done.

    1. Thank you. I always felt like when you say the right words you can speak something into existence.
