I lack the words
that need to be said
I fear my silence
for what it implies

as it ever gets
misunderstood for disrespect
and under that scrutiny
I tend to fall apart

swallow my words
and all of my pride
collapse under the weight
the pressure I build up

until there is nothing
that even I want to salvage.
