She bled unspoken words from her fingers

Watched as they fell from her hands

Until the paper beneath her was smothered

In thoughts, she couldn’t understand

The words danced with glee on the paper

As they worked upon forming straight lines

They’d escaped from the cage from where she’d locked them

And jumped free of her body’s confines

She couldn’t hide them by biting her tongue

So she watched with wide eyes as they shifted

And each single sentence was strung

They told stories she’d long since forgotten

Swept into the dustiest parts of her mind

And stories she’d worked to keep hidden

Ones she prayed nobody would find

As she watched the world's dances get slower

And finally, come to a rest

She felt a smile creep over her features

And a great weight lift off of her chest

She’d thought her words were all worthless

But the paper left nowhere to hide

She finally noticed the beauty

That she always kept bottled inside
