Aside

silence

if i write the words
the thoughts will grow, dance and stab
silence, a scared guard

Aside

saved

my voice has been caught
in my throat
for months
choking
gagging
dying
then i looked for it
and it wasn’t there
the pain in my chest
had stopped
the heart attack killed me
months ago
i searched
for mouth to mouth
resuscitation
girls and beauty
art and music
and was saved
in soul to soul
conversation
