So many things left unspoken
They cut, leaving my heart broken
Countless thoughts swirling in my head,
Stifling my chest and eroding my stead…
So many things I wish I could have said…
Yet I’m left carrying the weight of this reality instead.
So many things I wish we could have done
But our stories died before they even begun;
I miss the things we never got a chance to do
The feelings we’ll never get a chance to work through;
The fact I’ll never know if there could have been anything more
Whether this unspoken thing would soar or plummet into the floor;
There are so many feelings left in silence
Seething, roaring with rage and defiance;
Feelings I’ll have to carry into their slumber
…they might have been hollow; or a marvellous wonder…
So many things were muted, were left unspoken;
Yet it was words that damaged, by that same token;
It won’t be words building the end of this line
Won’t matter they’re yours or if they are mine…
It won’t be words to help untwine
It’ll always be distance, and it’ll take time.
So many things were left unsaid
Yet, saying them won’t move us ahead.
