For Knot Saying

I became fearful of
my own words,
of what I might say
and if you were listening,
really listening.
And so I stitched
the words together
till I ran out of words
and sat for a long time
instead in silence
and listened to what
the heart could say,
that without the words,
it felt more like
a knot in the stomach
for not saying,
that I have decided,
just today, to pull the
stitching out of all of them.
