Do you ever feel as though you can’t speak? You have all these thoughts, feelings, emotions, words, running through your head. Endlessly ranting inside your skull pounding to get out. But your throat closes up, speechless you can’t say a word. Your tongue twitches as it feels the pain your mind is in. Your lips are pressed closed by the invisible bandage around your mouth, forbidding you to even try to let out a sound.
It’s two fold: internal and external.
Internally it’s you. Your mind is to much, you don’t know where to begin, you’re overwhelmed, upset, and can’t gather the right words to match the expressions you feel. So your throat closes off your voice, as to silence you until your mind is made up.
Externally it’s society. They won’t understand, they won’t accept, they don’t want to hear it, and they won’t allow it. Close minded, unwelcoming, abandoning you, disregarding all respect and value of what you hold. They cover you’re mouth, conceal your lips to make you voiceless. Your words are pointless and silence is all they want.
You’re fucked both ways. No one can hear you because you can’t make a sound. Even if you could, would anyone listen?
