More and more I bite my tongue.
I say nothing,
for the words I hold back,
intentionally or not,
will hurt you.
Causing someone pain is against my nature.
I prefer to give gentle touches and lingering warmth.
Yet all I can offer you is this
To save you,
I will carry these burdensome words.
Because the truth hurts
more painful than a voiceless lie.
Or does it?
