The Remedy

I close my mouth and listen,

To words unspoken,

They shout louder than silence.

 

Dissolve on my tongue,

Like bitter pills,

I am reluctant to swallow.

 

I take the remedy,

Like a worm in my gut,

Eating me inside out.

 

You might thank me,

For what I didn’t say,

If you knew how it felt,

To feel.
