My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

July 18, 2010 “Heard”

“Heard”

I have something to say
but I can’t say it
not allowed to say it
so I try to write it
but writing won’t do
it needs to be said
said out loud
but my voice was taken
now what do I do
beg for it back
like I’m somehow to blame
for lighting this flame
words are not cheap
and they’re too hard to keep
bottled up inside
they need to be said
to get them outside
get them out of my head
they won’t let me sleep
they kill every thought
my mind is screaming
when it should be dreaming
please give me my voice
let me be heard
just let me be heard
when sleep comes to take me
you won’t hear a word
