Welling Up - Poem by Holly Heron

It's welling up inside of me,
It's slipping through my mask,
Why don't you look away?
I don't want you to see!
It's taking over mind and speech,
This sadness will not leave,
It's welling up inside of me,
And yet I can not speak,
Can't speak the truth,
About my life,
Calamity, despair,
Can't give you my confessions,
Can't tell you what I feel,
It's welling up inside of me,
Wish I could give it voice,
It's welling up inside of me,
I fear it will get loose.
