Poem: Say Something

My name is Candice Ballinger, and I am a published author and poet.


Say Something

How do I say that I'm okay

do I whisper

or scream your name?

Every part of my being

fragmented in time

pulled apart from the seams,

left to forget the same

I'm scared that I'm dying

how do trade this terror

I am a queen of trade

I will conquer this fear,

living a life full of desire

no sins to great to defeat,

bringing life to the fallen

I will be heavenly;

I will be okay

leaving me shaken

turned over,

and brave.
