Word Vomit

Word Vomit

I wait as the words build
Like bile in my mouth,
Biting my tongue
Until the blood mixes with
My word vomit;
Resentment fills me
As I remember what happened — 
The betrayal I feel is somehow
Masked by this mask I wear;
Unable to express myself
Or explain how I feel,
I resign to drowning,
Choking on the words
I can never say.
