Stories Untold

Many stories lie in the back of my mind
Daring to be expressed in words rude and kind
Unpolished languages that moisten the eye
Fiction and fact from far below to the sky
Stories that these lips just cannot say
Stories from the past that do not decay
Stories that wish to be spoken out
In crisp lines that could be recited aloud
To fall and spread like autumn leaves
To overcome blocks stuck in the throat like beads
Forbidden by voice with a pain captured within
Tears blur the vision; eyes closed - no more is seen
These stories weigh on me to scribble a few lines
A few words that have been unspoken so many times
But the words are captured in my heart like a cage
And another day passes just like another age
