I try to speak up when words need to be said..

But I sit in silence and stay quiet instead.


I cry and I walk and I laugh and I talk

But im silent..

Im not dead ' im just breathless...

I want to shout it out to you

But im breathless..

I want to tell you but the silence quietens my voice and I become restless.

With my arms stretched out wide

And my hands in reach,

Known you wont grab on feels like im drowning in bleach...

My eyes they burn and my skin feels rough.

My chest it clenches and makes breathing tough..

I hold onto hope

I hold into my faith

Are you willing to listen befour its to late..

I am breathless..

The sky is limitless and so is our life

You cant silence me and demand a good wife.

A listing ear can go along way.

A listing ear could make me stay.


This mess is yours and yet im still here.

And all I ask for is a listing ear.

I know some words. May be tough to hear " but we can be strong with tears and fears.


I am breathless and restless but still full of love.

I always be thankful to the man up above.

He gave me you and gave you me..

PLEASE let me talk to set this pain free.


You want me to marry you but will you listen today

Hi Wendy
Its a struggle im sure many face..
To be torn between your own needs and not wanting to be selfish is extremely hard..
Its important to be heard " its apart of the commitment we signed up for....
I have learnt that silence only makes it worse..
Speak up Wendy and keep speaking until every last word enters the eardrums and lays eggs for one day the words will ripping and expand until their is no denying them anymore...
My eggs hatched after eight long agonizing months.... I pray yours will hatch soon so you can be as free as I ?xx

Trevor... 100%... Sometimes its hard to speak when it falls on deaf ears, sad but true.. Being heard is a blessing and those who dont listen can teach a great lesson ?

Those times when you want to say something, but you 'bottle it' and it just comes out sotto voce.
