encumbered

i get miserable
constipated with
the words when they
refuse to unlodge
from the back of
my bloody throat

whether or not
i ever make anything
from writing
it is what i was
forged in the crucible
of life to do

so please forgive me
if i have grown
overly encumbered by
miseries and silence
before long i know
the dam will surely shatter
