Simmering Stepmom

Angry words are loud in my head
Unspoken
Building up
So fucking frustrated
Speaking won’t change anything
Except to reveal my inner intolerance

Silence keeps me sweet
And seething

Harsh, bitter retorts drumming
Teeth mentally grinding
Reality forces my tongue between my molars
To protect my myself

Speak softly
For the love of all
Speak fucking softly
