Quiet Words

The words that are never really heard.

Lost in a place between

spoken and unspoken.


Manifested is the fear,

of sounding like an

illiterate idiot.


But whats greater then that fear

is the fear of being heard.

The fear that people will judge

every little word that is spoken.


That is why I speak with quiet words

 Because of that fear of being heard.
