“LIVING BODIES IN THE SAME ROOM OF SILENCE”

Must we wait

until something explodes?

We’re still the living bodies

in the same room of silence

 

Avoid the gaps and the holes

Don’t step on egg shells

Fine, I’ll just tiptoe or carefull crawl

before declaring all is well

 

Are you joking?

Can’t you hear it?

Listen.

That time bomb is ticking.

 

You still go about your days

expecting it to fade away

There are words I’d like to say

yet they’re forever stuck in my head

trapped!

 

Now you begin to see

recognising the bomb as it is

Don’t you long to be free?

Don’t let it destroy you to pieces

 

You?

No, also me and all of us

For once,

be honest to yourself

about what’s always been true

We have issues

The mishandling has been long, overdue
