Imprisoned Words

Sometimes
When I look
At his face
I am over come
With emotion
And I have to
Pace

Myself
Contain the words
That yearn
To slip from my lips
And be heard

The words
Like fire
Inside my mouth
Plotting an escape
Burning for freedom

Smoldering on my
Tongue
I can taste the
Aching
Yearning
The desire

To be heard
To break free
But courage
Fades away

Choked back
Into my throat
I swallow
These words
And there they lie
Smoldering

Waiting
For me
To be brave
Be wild
Reckless

To set them free
