Damburst of words. ( What if ? )

What if words came flowing out ?

What if things unsaid flew from me ?

What if the dam burst and

All I felt and held

Screamed and flowed and tumbled free ?

Oh Jesus what if ?

What if ? What if ? What if ?

Would I be free ?

Would I feel the sweet release and tumbledown ?

Where would I then be ?

Who would be with me ?

Who could embrace the flowing me ?

Who could float with the flotsam and jetsam ?

Could I ?

Me ?

Myself ?

I ?
