spill

tears no longer curb
my urge to speak
as words shake
with the most power
that I have ever felt
I spew out things
I never thought
that I could ever say
spilling truth because
I am never drained
always overflowing
into toxic territory
even when sounds
get drowned out
by constant sobbing
between breaths
