Losing your voice.

12 Feb

To be unable to speak the words

In the way you meant them,

For them to come out sounding

Hard and harsh and cold

Weak and yet too strong

for your taste

Breaking, breaking apart

Too solid…too dead.

Words that break the silence

In an unwelcome way

A voice that takes instead of gives

To its listeners.

 

 

I want my voice back, to sing

To feel, to hear it and feel justified

By the words that come out of my mouth,

And not want to retract them

For sounding wrong.
