Swallowed Words

Swallowed words
That hang high from the ceiling
Are quite revealing.

Where are all the words you swallowed?
Is it in your heart that is all but hollowed

Where are you going?
To a world where your tongue runs free?
Can’t you see?
Oh, Cant you see?
This is the only place you’re ever gonna be.

Swallowed words
That you failed to say
Will haunt you in the day
You can’t turn them away
All the words you failed to say.

Where are you going?
To a place far away?
Where your heart longs to stay
Where your tongue can very well say
All that it pleases
Oh, can’t you see
Can’t you see
This is the only place you’re ever gonna be.
-Anirudh Shankaran
