Give me a pen

Give me some paper

Tongue to my thoughts
Voice to my whispers
Screams to my fingers
Pouring words from my soul

Voice to my whispers
Secrets I try to hold
They won’t stay buried
Fighting back fighting bold

Screams to my fingers
Itching for the cool of air
Metaphors form cloaks
Readying to share

Pouring words from my soul
Unsealed consciousness gaping
Tears cascade from my spirit
Words scrambling and shaping

Give me a pen

Give me some paper
