If I Could Only Say …

In response to Writing Outside the Lines challenge Prompt 7 for the week of September 20, 2015:

In our lives there are people, sometimes several, that we have things we want to talk to them about, something to tell them, something to share – good or bad, but the timing just is never right and those things go unsaid. Those things you could never tell go with you to the grave or at least are lost to the person you needed to tell when they go to theirs.

If I Could Only Say …

There are so many words

in my heart

in my mind

in my soul

that need to be said

that need to be shared

that need to be discussed

 

Yet…

Fear is keeping them to

myself … at least for now

Perhaps I will write them

all down and put them

in an envelope addressed

to you …

One that will be found by

some random individual

going through the detritus

of my sad life when I am

no more than dust on

a forgotten mantel

 

Maybe it will be mailed

perhaps it will be tossed

with all the other bits

and pieces collected for

years that no longer

have significance to

anyone …

living or dead

 

There is no guarantee

if mailed it will find

you …

Perhaps you have gone

ahead to pave the way

in the Universe for my

arrival …

Maybe then …

we will reconnect and

I can tell you

my thoughts…

my fears…

what all I held back

for years that needed

to be said…

And…

We will both laugh

because in the end

it really didn’t matter…

Pain

Give me your pain
Kiss me so I can
swallow it deep into
my being
 
Taking it away from
you and into me to 
deal with…
dilute…
And…
eventually
discard…
 
Leaving you with
a cleansed
soul…
spirit…
heart…
 
Pain is such a
part of life
 
But…
 
Pain compounded is
too much for any 
soul to bear
 
I am here for
you to share 
that burden
