My Mind is Louder Than I'll Ever Be

My Mind is Louder Than I'll Ever Be

A Poem by Sarah Wolfe

I live in my head.

I’m a caged bird that only sings for itself,

for the world never hears my songs.

My voice catches in my throat.

I choke on words.

I won’t ever speak for myself,

for I drown myself in thought

Like dancing in the black of night,

or shouting into the void of space.

I don’t want to be seen or heard,

but I still want to be felt.

I want to be felt

as the fluttering in your chest,

or the pounding of your heart.

I'm pretty sure my favorite part was,
"My voice catches in my throat.
I choke on words.
I won’t ever speak for myself,
for I drown myself in thought"
Anyways, keep up the good work!!
