Silence as Healing Strategy

I’ve aired my frustrations in a display of angst
unleashing the demons I fear most to run free –
My stoic act is a reflection of improbable facts
pieced together from remains of a shattered rearview mirror –

I’ve played my hand as a second-rate poet
toying with picture-perfect events – past, present, & future
as the noise in my head amplifies the impact of this emotional portrayal
forcing a strained silence to surface
as I struggle to disentangle the damages of articulation
