Words - Poem by Jennifer Sol

Oh, how I long to write
But the words will not come
So much pain inside
Fighting to break free
Where are my words
They are stuck in my throat
Coming no farther
I want to spill my hurt
In a flow of words
But they escape me
Letters combining
Molding into pictures
Portraying my broken heart
It came so easily once
Ah, but the words run away
Fearful of being put on paper
Terrified that they will show
Just how anguished I really am
Words of pain, of love
Hiding from my view
They will not flow freely
I must delve deep
To find them and tempt
Them out into the open
Each word pulled from
The darkest of caves
It is like a broken bone
Pain accompanies every move
With every word out of his mouth
I only love him more
This love, not even paper and pen
Can display
Oh, how I long to write
But the words escape me now
