This Is What Happens When There’s Coffee at Home

Drowning in a puddle of thoughts,

In pain from a thousand muted words,

Why do I remain unsaid

When these winged fears I’m holding

Are ready to fly off?

I’m in a warzone and I’m seeing

A battalion sharing the same face as me,

And I wonder why I remain

Pitted against myself

A thousand times in a thousand faces?

Hesitation hides my voice while

Doubt dances my courage away,

And I’m crippled from inside

With these time-worn feelings I have –

That which remain unvoiced –

All that I’m dying to scream.

To you.

    what a heading and I loved the way you carried it forward with your thoughts… liked it a lot. I enjoyed reading the words “I remain unsaid” Great imagery.
