A Ball of Yarn

There’s a ball of yarn

Inside my chest;

Something struggling to get out.

Don’t know what it is.

 

Sometimes I feel

Like a mute

Who can only

Make noises but not speech.

 

I had a voice once

And I will again.

Only time will tell,

Will tell, will tell

 

The story,

The mystery,

So well.

How?

How do you tell someone you love them

Though you don’t agree?

How do you show them gratitude

After all these years?

 

Will they trample on your love?

Crush it under their feet?

Will they say,

“Yes, I was right all along!” ?

 

How do you say a word

When you’ve been silent all these years?
