Rate this poem

I feel the strings are breaking

The ones that hold us close

Pulled taunt

by the load they bear

the unspoken words

Growing heavier

as we refuse to say them

 

Fearing that our strings will brake

And knowing that they will

We are fraying

Our hopes cannot save this

The ties that bind us

Now burn us

from inside

 

Yet we will continue

Us fraying people

To pretend  that

no unspoken words

No terrifying feelings

No burning ties around our hearts

Exist

 

Because no one wants to be

Alone

 

These are the ties that bind

These burning strings

That will continue to scorch us

Until we cut them

out of our hearts

 

Or speak

those burning words

 

And face

These scorching feelings
