Words Can't Say

by Unseen Exposure   May 25, 2005

Begin your sentence with the words of betrayal, I won't blame you at all
When I suffer from reckless oblivion, I'll pretend not to act appalled
And when you squeeze your anger deep into my engrossed body
You'll use an excuse to justify how disrespecting me is just a hobby

Well breathing isn't required, and fists don't needed to be clenched
You don't have to trap me in anger, you don't have to keep me entrenched
If it makes it easier to rape me, then expose me for what I am
The things you see may shock you, but I swear I do the best I can

And if you're begging for attention, then I'll grovel at your mercy
You can tell me how it's pointless, or instead, how I'm just not worthy
Pulling threads of pain through my pores will not cure this rage
Writing pointless syllables will not release me from this cage

You can tie this rope tighter, you can wrap the chains with hate
The tighter you squeeze the anger, the quicker I dissipate
Lift me off the ground with my heels barely touching the floor
If all you wanted was for silence, I wouldn't have spoken anymore

But I begged on account of remorse and screamed for my release
Hoping to get you to notice, enlightened with thoughts of peace
But if you want to torture this and beat it until it turns blue
Then God for bid I try and stop the things you've set out to do

I swear I tried to save this, rather than suffocate within your hands
I would have stood up to tell you, but you wouldn't let me stand
If all you wanted was a solution, then
we should have thought it through
I would have stopped this hatred, I would have done it all for you.

    I agree with everyone else. Excellent job. All your poems have a sense of depth, a power that flows along with them, it pulls you in to the poem, to live what you felt, or the message derived from the poem. Again, wonderful poem.
