Always hiding behind written words –
Verbal restraint is expression in prose.
Riddles and metaphors for personal poetry,
An alphabetical defence shield,
Speaking unspoken words to an invisible audience
Selecting who shall solve the puzzle
To figure out if they’re the solution,
The root of emotion – the first line of the poem.
A conversation made of broken stanzas.
Self-expression that only involves the self,
And a quiet art for the loudest of souls.
