I know I’m about to detonate,
I’m wound up so tight inside,
a roller coaster of emotions,
I’m trying so hard just to hide.
The flames ignited deep inside,
the fires growing so bright,
I know I have to speak my truth,
but when the time is just right.
I’ve found my fire, harnessed it,
I am keeping it under control.
It’s growing every moment now,
just like the flower, I unfold.
The deepest rose, as red as blood,
opens to the beats of my heart,
holding back on the explosion,
I’m not sure of when to start.
But I must speak, must let it go,
as on every moment I hang.
until the time I whisper to you,
words that come with a BANG
