UNZIPPED LIPS

These words are from 
the depths, 
Of a nightmare I dare not 
fathom...
These written antidote,
For that which consumes 
me inside...
Time fly fast
Can these "wingless" 
words?

I try  to masquerade 
these words in lines,
Trying  to hide that 
which is visible  to the 
eyes,
Am hurt..Am afraid....Am 
confused...
I wear these smiles,
clothe  my bitterness,
Embellish it with 
beauty.. 
Faces are truly mask,
Obscuring the wounded 
spirit...

If I could say,
If you may,
I'll scream  for relief,
From the horrors of 
reality....
It hurts,the truth, it does,
These lies are  my own 
pain killer...

I stand here, no one  to 
turn  to
Everyone on the fast 
lane of their reality...
No,''how are you"
"How can I aid you"
They all say "we care"
But that's a lie well said

S.O.S! This soul cries of 
the midst of the 
blackness
Held south by a dark past
Held north by a blur 
future
S.O.S! I dial...
Someone pick up the 
phone! 



(When ever I feel like 
this..I go on  my knees 
and pray  for GODs 
mercy..and affirm his 
words  for  my life...and 
it real helps..)

LIPS" CONTEST***

    Prince ~ Very powerful and thought provoking too. Sounds like you may have even lived it. I felt it as I read and have found inner peace with prayer! Your Friend ~ Debbie K.
