Under my tongue
lie unformed words
like a cluster of emotions
hidden in the silence
you so despise

is not enough
You demand reasons
for the way I am

Apology is not
a peace offering
that pleases you

I offer us peace
by biting my tongue
to set us free

  1. This is the type of poem you want to read again. It’s hard hitting and carefully crafted Cassa. I admire the layers you have written into this and the internal conflict. Now let me go read it for the fourth time.
