The Tightest Grip Loosens When Tested

Be quiet now in this breathing.

A jagged inhale is breaking.

Remain sedate

with folded hands

waiting patiently

for promises to be unbroken.


Still as can be in this smothering.

A shudder starts to reverberate.

Cancel out

in prescription rolls.

A dull smile

the misunderstood warning sign.


Brace now for the disentanglement.

You may not know it yet;

that words

run loudly first,

then so quietly

are realized in true colors.


Steady hold to survive in the ward.

No one calls you anymore.

Many words

speak proudly,

but unmasked violently,

and underneath are broken promises.

( ❤ Mitch)
