The only part of my day
That I look forward to
Is when I go to bed
And lay there making up scenarios
In my head.

I think of comebacks
To 8th grade bullies.
I think of witty retorts
To my mother's snide comments.
I think of intelligent things to add
To conversations I had months ago.

I think of all the things
I was too scared to say.

And in my mind
I say them.
And pretend how things would be different
If only I had the courage to speak.

Kiss me once
upon the lips,
and speak to
me as if
my ears
are the most
important
you've ever
spoken to.

i went to the marketplace
i and my girl child
who is me and i her
we were drawn
drawn in
there stand a medicine man
he taught the speak
and the spoken
that which is innate
that which was known
all intent is tone

An open book
glowing white page
ink enticing
seducing me...
“speak”
Speak the truth however bold
Speak what lies inside the hearts folds
Do not fear the pain it may cause
Live the moment, do not once pause
Take the chance and feel free
Speak from the heart so it can be
Forget the cowardess you feel
One minute of bravery can dispell the ills
If you feel it may cause you disdain
Remember true beauty rises from pain
15 seconds of courage is all you need..

The devil
Lived
Yet to live
Isn't evil.
Spell a word backwards and watch the magic work wonders. Just a bit of fun with words.

Energy to speak
And breath to engage with you;
Not enough for *math.

Red rain drizzles
Pierced my tongue with dispair
Devil's word in spoken tongue
Sarah Jane Nov 2014
Looking through my soul,
Not my eyes.
Vibration draws,
Patterns to your light.
Your energy collides,
It speaks to mine.
Beautiful whispers,
Colours intertwine.

I have a bit of a lisp.
It's not too noticeable,
but sometimes it catches my tongue
and the next thing I know
i'm linking my words together
as if I fluently speak one of the 'love' languages.
Let me tell you,
there is nothing attractive about your S's and th's
blending together as if you were a snake.
When it happens I just want to lower myself to the floor
and slither away on my belly
and go and hide.

But I will take the embarrassment
of getting tongue tied
as long as I never have to tell anyone,
a final good bye.

Because good bye's are forever.

*To be continued...
Good bye's are the most difficult things to say sometimes, aren't they? Because a final good bye would mean that you had some sort of emotional attachment to that person and now they are just gone. So yeah, I trip over my words and sometimes I lisp my way through a conversation, but I have the most trouble just saying good bye.

Fingernails dig into my skin
Logically the more I pick the sooner it will go away, who cares about scars right?

  Thu-
that fateful moment when one finger slips and your world comes crashing down.
  Wine glass
  Spoons
  Tea cups
All standing in four rows
There's only three tea cups
And one spoon.
This
Gets
  Worse
With the
  Stress
  Fear
  Nerves

Keep speaking up without fear
Someday someone'll beyond hear
Keep championing for change
*Albeit it does you estrange
