war within

the war i’ll never win

stationed in my mouth

- where my teeth bite my tongue.

the words want to come


i warrior my words;

no war is won.


conflict,

as i lick the taste away;

defeated, in between.

i can never say what i mean.


polite, nice, lady-like,

kind.

swallow the reaction,

sip in the silence - every time.


the war i’ll never win is hidden,

within.
