I Will Overcome The Abuse-Rachel Finch

wp-image-1522222582

I have words to speak, but my tongue is

still numb from the flavour of your lies.

I have a truth to tell, but i’m not sure

whether to swallow it.

Keep it buried where it’s

always belonged.

Who I really am, living in my

stomach,

making a home behind my ribcage,

stifling my wings.

I have a decade of stories, bursting behind

swollen lips and flustered cheeks, shame

carried in my face.

I want to find my voice, but I think it got

buried beneath yours in my throat and I

can’t remember what I sound like.
