In between - a poem.

Tonight I was challenged to stop censoring myself... I have been for fear of my words being misconstrued. But I write fiction and poetry. The truths hidden in them are for us all and yet not for any of us...

So here goes...

In Between.

In between
this breath and the next,
I want to be honest with you.
Before the rush of oxygen to my brain reminds me
why it's not
advised
mature
fair
kind
honest
truthful
loving
safe
I want to blurt it out, cut it free from the place I've hidden it.
Before I can think better of it, before I can censure myself
I want to say what's in my heart and on my mind.

But there is no gap in between, it's one gulp after another
time
never
slows
enough
I am never fast enough
brave enough
thoughtless enough
to set it free
