Teacher teach me
How to speak
This language -
I’ve been mute
Teach my tongue
To trace the words,
Ones I could not
Compute

Teacher teach me
How to feel
My heart grow
And expand
To navigate
This ship of sorts
Into uncharted
Land

Teacher teach me
To survive
The flames that grow
And yearn
And comfort me
When in the end
The fire leaves me
Burned

Teacher teach me,
Teach my heart
How to slowly
Break
A ripping that
Stings and tears,
Screaming of
Mistakes

Teacher teach me
One last trick
The dance they call
Denial
When everything
Comes crashing down
Just turn to me
And smile

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
