Dead Tree

Truth burns my chest
Shame sews my lips
And my pen won’t rest
Between my finger tips

For my hand just shakes
Everyone is watching me
To see how long it takes
For my words to grow a tree

The words must come out
Or they’ll burn me alive
So why is my mouth in a drought
And my pen unable to contrive
