Silent Words

Fear paralyzed me and I froze

I’m witnessing it and I can’t let go

We’re listening only to respond

We don’t want to set our focus on the words

So they flow into space, they flow into nothingness

We’re being told to hold back

But when you hold back you stay in the dark

Lack of exposing our expressions

Lack of expressing our emotions

It hurts my soul that people are hurting quietly

They’re stuck in a cycle of darkness and I can’t bring them light because they won’t express themselves

We are healers and we also need to be healed

It’s a connection that we share

But we are pulling away from each other because we’re encouraging each other to swallow our words

When we don’t release them, they shout in our bodies
