A Voice Like Lava Flowed

Once

I whispered my truths

to the unfeeling dawn

unheard

unacknowledged

my words

began to build up

choke me

overtake me

and in that stifling silence

I discovered a voice within myself

hot with rage

pain

deep in my soul

simmering

bubbling

in my gut

that erupted

unexpectedly

like a volcano

cleared away

the debris in my throat

 

I didn’t intend to shout my truths

 

But now that I have the dawn’s attention

I am reluctant to let it go

it does not feel

like time to go back to sleep
