Sayings and Proverbs
Nails on the Door
by Rebecca Spencer © 2019
As my thoughts search for an escape,
The scale balances until there is stillness,
But my lips stay sealed.
How can a situation make you so uneasy,
That your brain to your body
No longer sends messages?
You're at a loss
As to why you cannot respond ...
" Please, at least do or say something."
Do not push me, my mind with venom
Silence can either be a weapon or a shield ,
But more often than not,
Consciously or unconsciously, it is both.
Knotted up and stiff I feel,
When emotions so tightly twist.
My stare appears emotionless,
And my dark chocolate colored eyes,
With fog become frosted.
Demanding not to make a sound,
I abduct myself,
Or this newly sharpened knife
Will meet my throat.
Like scrabble--the board game,
Words become scattered,
And oxygen becomes non-existent,
As if I just teleported to space.
Reality is switched out for a comical fantasy,
Where I cannot go up or down, left or right.
I become paralyzed,
Into a sculpture ...
