Truths Left Unspoken

“Truths Left Unspoken”, Rhythmic Poetry, 9-27-16

Many secrets lead me astray.
Why do I want to run away?

I have all I’ve ever wanted.
So what’s missing? I’m still haunted.

Hidden by truths left unspoken,
There is part of me that’s broken.

Be content with medication
Or a much-needed vacation.

When there is too much stress to face,
I want to leave this unsafe place.

-Brandi Easterling Collins
