Losing My Voice

I can't remember how it happened.

One moment it was there and

the next moment it was gone.


It began with

the use of quiet words and never being heard.

It began with the doubt and the insecurities.


My voice which once burned so bright

became nothing more then a dying ember of light.


Fear had manifested itself in my thoughts

and in the tiny knots

that grew in my stomach.


Slowly and gradually

my voice begins to fade

in my own poisonous mind

full of fear and doubt.


I'm losing my voice.


What can I say?
