Hearing

 

I am imprisoned in silence

Your insecurities

The prison guard

I utter wordless screams

But you do not listen

 

What I have to say matters

You won’t you listen

My thoughts are vast and deep

My heart cries out

Desperate for you

                                                                       To listen

Wisdom falls from my teeth

I am strong, I am kind

Why won’t you listen?

Longing for my heart to be seen, to be known

Drop the armor of your fear

Lay your head upon my breast and trust

Trust to listen

Longing for my heart to be seen

 To be known

Drop the armor of your fear

 Lay your head upon my breast and trust

My sweet words heal you

 

 Oh, please listen
