Imprisoned Words

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

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
I can taste the
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

For me
To be brave
Be wild

To set them free
