Keeping Peace

I’ll bite my tongue

I will not speak

Peace between us

I wish to keep

Your words pierce

Maybe well intentioned

But you don’t understand

And I don’t like confrontation

I’ll bury your words

In the back of my mind

I know they’ll resurface

From time to time

As for my words

Inside my cheek

I’ll swallow them down

This makes me weak

The syllables sharp

As they go down

They’re tearing me up

No stopping them now

The acid dissolves

My every word

I’ll smile at you

But I won’t be heard

Thank you for reading,
