"What is literature
but the illumination of that which I would write?" -Rider Strong

Explosive words, bubbling beneath the surface
Sentences, fragments, unfinished thoughts
Screams in my head, my mind
No words come out

Tears and aching, longing

Silent sobs in hidden places
A throbbing pain, loneliness and sadness in one
No words come out

No diamonds to be seen, but dust all around
Stress fractures through a cool façade
Frantic fear and desperation
No words come out

A careful mask, so similarly different
Perfectly imperfect in all the ways I’m not
A painted on smile
No words come out
