The words
As thick as chocolate
Melted in the bottom of my carry on
Stick in my throat
Threatening to shut off
The breath
My voice
My life
The world
Bitter are the chocolate words
I long to spit out
Onto the ground
All over
The pretentious shine
On your facade
But they have taken root
Glued shut
The doors of my heart
Sticking my tongue
Fast to my teeth
Gagging me
From the inside
Leaving the thoughts
Screaming in my brain
And through it all
I smile
