Swallow My Tongue

I love to write about how certain situations effect us so much later in life. We hold on so tight to tramatic things.

Swallow my Tongue

Pick and pull more cities full
More and more of you adored
All this evidence never again stored
Locked away inside, among my heart
Stay, talk to me instead,
Of putting up some defense
Remember, I am here for you
For you, alone I swallow

I bite, tongue so sore
It's difficult to say
Difficult to see you in this beautiful light
Please forgive me,
As to what has come
Look me in these hazel eyes
Remember be honest
Instead of trying to speak
I never took the light
I'll never swallow my tongue
