i find it somewhat difficult
to speak, so stutter about
and mutter over chatter
as if it really mattered
my secrets unfold between
the mottled shadows pulsing
on this wall like the words
whispered beneath the noise
of all the voices I have heard
so listen closely to my heart
and trust that what I say
is true despite the layers
within these lines which hide
what I would speak to you
(September 2011)
