See, Not Hear

My soul, its words
Cannot possibly escape
Through the guarded body

Prisoners are they
Trapped behind such
Tightly bound lips

The singular route
To the ear's delight
Is sewn shut

But wait!
The confession you seek
Need not words

These rebels you see
Finally discovered the key
To freedom

Hear not my tortured words
Feel not my cold hands
But see my longing eyes
