Can We Just Say

poetry

Can we just say
that I’m not as shy as I am,
that your rejection wouldn’t crush me?
Can we just say
that I am not still broken,
that the past does not haunt me?
Can we just say
that I can just say everything that is needed,
that I am actually the person living in my mind?
Can we just say
we should try
and have that be that.

Please, can we just say,
or perhaps can you,
because for someone who has so much to say
I can’t just say.
all the things that I need to say;
like you showed me the depths I could study
and you opened my eyes
to a part of me that needed to breathe.
I need to say
that your smile glows your soul’s joy on your face
making me want to learn more about that soul of yours.
I need to say
that I may not be the strongest,
but I am pretty sure I am the bravest,
because fear of the past haunts me,
fear over rejection surrounds me,
and I am really just a scared little girl.
Yet, I still stand
and walk to my future.
I still smile and try to figure out what to say,
I still tell myself I can do the impossible,
I can smile and try.
Still I simply cannot say
all the things I need to say.

So, can you just say
that you do see what I cannot say?
Can we just say
that I can say
all the things that I need to say?
Can we just say,
anything at all to each other?
