"Silence equals Death"

Gash out my confessions,
push me to the edge of misery
so I can screech out the truth
before my voice attacks my essence.

I made my heart weak and left my
eyes stained on my shirt; I've
accumulated verses of agony, but
my vocals cords are tangled
with fear.

You never stop sinking your
resistance into my neck and
now I've grown silent & frozen
because I murdered myself behind
walls of memories.  
"you made me as mute as a mouse, might as well finish off the voice you never wanted to hear."

Inspired by the film, "Tongues Untied"

Very chilling and emotional.

I love the line "I've accumulated verses of agony, but my vocal cords are tangled."
