to the quiet ones
who are afraid
of the sound
of their voices:
write
and your words
will scream from the page


(and you will be heard).

when you write about him
remember
that ink is permanent


and he doesn’t deserve
to live on forever
in your words.

—  eternal words by shelby leigh

you never hurt me,
not physically,
but I still felt the pain
in your words

and maybe there’s no
visible bruise on my skin
but surely there’s a
scar on my heart

—  by shelby leigh
stop waiting for him
to give you the world
when he hasn’t even
loaned you his heart.
