learning to pray

there are days
i cannot breathe
as the air has shaped
itself to your name
yet my lips
are too afraid
to speak you.

  1. I would say Speak! And if you want a Serbian proverb to go with it, in hopes it might make you laugh, we have a saying that some people, if ordered silence, will speak if from nothing, their arse.
