Afraid to Speak

it’s just terrifying
that the words on my lips
can serve to steady me
or tip me over the precipice
I don’t want to fall
pain is a scary thing
but worst of all is that
someone else will be hurting
do I close my mouth
tight lipped against this
or speak the formidable truth
that cannot be fought against
nobody wins in love and war
and I have always been losing
but I never dreamed it would come to this
the end by my own choosing
