A Voice Like Lava Flowed


I whispered my truths

to the unfeeling dawn



my words

began to build up

choke me

overtake me

and in that stifling silence

I discovered a voice within myself

hot with rage


deep in my soul



in my gut

that erupted


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
