Words Unsaid

Words Unsaid

A Poem by Flaming Coal

Angry faces and crossed arms

Should I have spoken more?

I thought my words might bring harm.

 

I sat in bed at night, eyes wide open, those bitter tears rolled down my cheeks.

It doesn’t feel nice to have a tear roll sideways.

I only just realized you lied.

 

I thought of witty comebacks,

Secretly wishing that the topic could come up again,

Just so I could say them.

 

They would have caught you off guard,

You would have been in trouble,

The teacher would have yelled at you!

 

But, I assume that you are now,

snuggled up in bed,

Blankets wrapped tightly around you,

While I think of all the words that went unsaid.

 

I really wish they hadn’t.
