[ highlight for the words unspoken ]

a terrifying thing, to be unsure.
so unsure that one
would not dare to use her voice,

  for fear of a consequence.

and more terrifying yet,
how passionate one can be,
in trying to ignore.

  putting off thoughts,

placing them with 'things to think about later'
when they're
b e g g i n g

  to be thought about now.

" well, perhaps one of us should speak
   to break this silence. "

better silence than a heart

" what a funny thing to say. "

" i don't care. "

you've done a great job convincing me.
