eruption (of silence) #16 of 30

(i thought i)
said everything that i needed to say
(but now)
there’s more words clogging up the passageways
(and then i)
can barely breathe around them
can’t swallow none of it down
eruption waiting to happen
but i can’t make a sound

duct tape across my lips
(sealing me)
holding back the flood
seething internally
lump of passion burning in my throat
doesn’t matter if i’m sleep or if i’m woke
i’m bent over
clutching at my sides
retching up the smokey lies
can barely breathe around them
can’t swallow none of it down
eruption waiting to happen
but i can’t make a sound

carve the lines in my flesh
put it on the walls
write it in my blood
come and witness one and all
revelation on the mountain
is silence the effect or the cause
can barely breathe around it
can’t swallow none of it down
eruption waiting to happen
but i can’t make a sound
