Seal It Off

And so I write.

I open up my mouth to speak what I feel.

I wonder why I’ve been silent for so long.

But as I open my mouth,

As all begins to resurface.

I realise that in the pain of the former silence, there was less pain than I find now.


And so I write.

Discovering once again my voice.

Discovering once again the things that hurt and were once sealed off.

As I open up my mouth, I hear things that should never be made vocal.

Simple utterances that dispel the myth of me.

The groans and moans of tears unshed.

The painful discovery of words unsaid.


And so I write.

Heart once again laid bare.

And I wonder how we got here.

This heart was sealed off.

I was stone made. I was strong. I was impervious to honey combed words. Impervious to the whims and wiles.

Yet somehow I now lie open.

Open to my mind and open to the elements.


Seal it off.

Seal it off again.

I need no fear


Seal it off

Seal it off again.

I need no tears.


I don’t wish to revisit old wounds

Replenish old hurts.

So seal it off.

Seal it off again.


Can I remember hope?

Can I remember belief?

Can I remember a future, that seemed not so bleak?


Seal it off.

Seal it off again.

Become ice, become cold again.

Forget to care again.

Forget to give again.

Forget to love again.

Forget to live again.

Yes, seal it off…Seal it off again
