If I speak first and break the silence
Will she run from me like the rest?
Or stay to the bitterness of knowing
What I truly am
What I may become
Failing to understand how to break free
A prison of unknowing and doubt
If only but to understand it
To understand why the walls feel so impossible
Could she understand them?
Understand why I choose to run instead
Of breaking the silence.
