"Never apologize for how you feel, it's like saying 'sorry' for being real." -Rob Dyer (S4C)

There are far too many words
I could not and cannot speak
when the abandoned ocean floor
hiding below the coral reefs

is the home I will die in.

And my unspoken words
surface long after my death.
They pour out whispered screams
forever after the sea lays me to rest.
The collection of syllables
tear an empathetic hole
where I once held a place
alive in this world.
The wound much like the ones
I had to bear each day
until life threw me overboard
and sinking, my body wasted away.
