Afraid to Be

She spoke fondly of poetry and art

Music and the stars

and then she shortly stopped

apologised for having spoke at all

all because someone she loved told her to shut up

and ignored her beautiful words

because nobody cared.

 

she spoke fondly of letters and guitars

Fashion and love

Dreams and ambitions

and then she shortly stopped

apologised for having dreamt at all

because someone she loved broke her heart

and told her nobody liked ambitious women

 

She spoke fondly of skill and talent

of teas and sweets

and then suddenly stopped

apologised for having spoke at all

because somebody she loved

broke her heart and told her to shut up

keep it down

 

She once spoke fondly of her life

of beautiful things

but one day she stopped

because someone she loved

told her she wasnt good enough

this broke her

and she stopped speaking
