Close mouthed, Open handed

I am telling you
No lies,
Pushing away the truth.
The truth –
Too large,
Refuses
To fit through
This small gap
Teeth and soft tissue
Ready to snap closed.

This of which
I am telling you -
I tell no lies
But
It tells of no truth,
No truth of the now
The now,
Am I doomed to silence?
Help me

Help me break free,
See me, see me
Show me.
I want to be free,
Free to say
What I really feel.

My mouth,
It won’t allow
Repeatedly Refuses
My freedom.

But, here I am.
Telling you
I am telling you now.
With my hands.
