Silent Words

Silent Words

My words are
an empty cookie jar; 
one you thought 
were full of homemade cookies.

I say what's on my mind;
I don't offer what
they want to hear.
I point out mistakes;
things they need to change
if they don't want to hurt anyone.

My words are poison. 

People roll their eyes 
and give me petty looks 
when I say something
that is clearly 
not what they want.

That is why I stay silent.
