Speak – Christine Ray

there is an art
to talking everything
about what is nothing
while saying nothing
about what is
everything
to paint
convincing illusions
of intimacy
candor
that successfully deflect
the curious eye
while frantically
stuffing down
the secrets that
chew at your gut
the poison of shame
corroding your veins
the self-blame
you inhale daily
into your lungs
believing that nothing
is as deadly
as dangerous
as devastating
as your truth
