Poem – Skeleton Words

I usually never post before a poem or what not but this is honestly one of my favorites. I sat down with a notebook late over the weekend and it just happened.


Unspoken, no reflection 

Cold silence

The skeleton words

Words we dare not say

That crumble and tear away

We struggle with them

They are packed and carried

Tucked away on our backs

Fiercely locked away

Throw away the skeleton key

Close the door

The words that remain in

Our heart

Just kept to ourselves 

That we replay if it is to be seen

Never to be told

Never to be spoken
