“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
