All the Words I Can’t Say

by Michelle Hughes

If I’ve never been able to be direct

If my sentences tend to run a little long

It’s because I’m afraid of the power

of one word gone wrong

And then it’s me, not you, that gets

All bent out of shape because

of the form from my words I take

And god, i know it’s not like i’d

break if there’s just even one more

person who thinks my cool is

fake…cause they’re right.

It’s totally fake.
