You said the words,
they left your mouth.
They were clear and defined.
It’s almost like – finally – you’ve allowed your mind,
to open up and let your feelings fly.
But – What to do now?
Because the one your words landed on,
the one who has been there for it all,
the one that helped, and cared, and listened.
She’s turned away – so now your backs against the wall.
And maybe it’s for good this time,
you begin to fear.
So you try some new words,
maybe these she’ll hear —– differently.
Just claim you were mad,
didn’t mean what you said.
Begin to tell her don’t be so crazy – it’s all in your head.
Try to pretend away the words you said when in front of all others.
For they don’t see how you turn the tables around,
even if they are your sisters or brothers.
But once words are out — you can’t put them back,
because they really do matter and that’s just a fact.
In time though you’ll learn and write and discover,
how to only allow your own words to matter to you
more than any other
