THE COST OF SILENCE

How did I get here in such short a time from

so far away. Once I was lonely but safe. Now I am wrecked by love my base torn within and alone again. Yet still I persist, a fool trying to hold on to something long gone. Do I want you to bare witness to my pain? Inflict the blame upon you though I know it lays elsewhere. So much love but I buried it deep within held back what you needed to see. Now I bare the mark the cut that smarts and lays open my bloody battered heart. I lacked the courage to venture further into us. Failed to trust what must be. What made me sow the seed of doubt that then did sprout and grow into a tree of treachery.
