Fragile words are trapped inside me.
Surfacing through acts of soul searching
Only to be used in conversations with my darkened spirit.
They channel themselves within the folds of my mind,
Falling to settle onto an already heavy heart.
They rise to choke me
Without daring to step off my tongue.
My secrets have the power to liberate in the presence of company.
However, I bury them, protect my words
Whilst i selfishly drown in favoured silence.
