Just Say It

“It hurts more if you keep it in.”
That’s what my therapist says
Every time we are set to begin.
My logical self knows that it’s true,
But I feel like letting it out exponentially
Increases the damage it will do.
My pain has its own heart.
It’s packed inside me so tight
I worry that once it’s out, I will fall apart.
The anguish threatens to overflow,
To break through
And destroy all that I know.
Can talking really save me?
Will words reboot my mind
And somehow set me free?
