Silence

The words they would not come
They were stuck inside of me like prisoners of war
Deprived of daily senses stored in some dark dungeon
I wanted to speak but silence prevailed
I surrendered to some not quaint argument of deceit
A voluminous package of verbiage was being denied
About to be swallowed and consumed like sour grapes
A metaphor, a simile, I could not even spit out
Grievances unspoken as if my tongue was broken
The knot in my throat was like a noose ready to squeeze

I'm boxed in and no one can hear my cry

Some amazing descriptions in this poem. I like this a lot, shows the power of silence and how it screams, full of words in our heads, passion, anger, and yet there is no sound and it overpowers us.
