These words are forming in my throat,
are on my tongue,
end up rolling off my lips.
I can't control it.
It won't even stop.
I'm tired of all these songs,
singing about love and heartbreak,
About suicide, death, and revenge.
These songs about lust, drugs, and sex.
Does anyone have a mind to speak these words?
These words building in my heart,
racing through my arm,
ending in this ink.
I'm tired of all these words we speak because we fear,
to hear our own voice.
We fear of what we really want to say.
These words we speak with no meaning.
| this writing is true|
this is yet better than
some of your other writing
prompts. you did good...
i sincerely agree with what
you wrote... why are people
like this we should be outgoing
and not be afraid to speak freely
yet mature like.

I don't know how into AFI you are but this reminds me of a line from this time imperfect==="asphyxiate on words I would say, I'm drawn to a blackened sky as i turn blue." ignorance really isn't bliss.....and that kind of attitude from society in general leads people to become mindless conformists. |

You can tell even in people's writings that they are still holding back. Still afraid of hurting someones feelings. It's kind of sad, because even in writing, people still censor things.|
