certain things in my mind
would be better left unsaid,
such as:

    i. how I stared at a bottle of pills for an hour as if they would slide down my throat on their own. ii. when I stepped out of the shower with bloody knees and didn't bother to put a band aid over them.   iii. why I can't keep a smile long enough for someone to take my picture. iv. who I wanted to be when I was a little girl and who I am right here and now.     v. where I tried to jump off a bridge and landed in water deep enough for me to swim in. vi. what I wanted to scream at you that day but I just stayed silent and hoped you would forget.

no more pretty words and
ludicrous metaphors
today; just life,
the truth, and everything
that I never want to tell
anyone else.
Bad things happened yesterday and I ended up hurting those that I couldn't bear to lose. I'm sorry.

I have used the title of this lovely deviation in a Found Poetry piece ( or Title Poem for #TheTitlePage ) here:

Thank you so much! :heart:

Hello! I've used the title of this piece in a title poem right here. Tell me if you don't want your title used, and I'll take it down.
Keep writing! :jedi:

:hug: This is certainly honest and well written - I'm glad you feel confident enough to write them down. The idea of things that should have been unsaid is something I can certainly relate to.

It's not so much confidence as it is the need to get it out :) But thank you.
