Sleep

words of truth
spoken in reverie
unheard, misunderstood
my heart opens wide
revelations revealed
to my own demise
my shout shall become a sigh
my heartbeat a flutter
a butterfly upon a mountain
a whisper in a hurricane
I reveal too much of myself
sew my mouth shut
stop my heart
lies and compromise
sing a sweeter song
some things
better left unsaid
some songs
better to be unsung
let the shadows remain
hidden within the depths
let the heart feel
let it never speak
just let me
sleep
