Poem: Words under vertigo

By: April Mae M. Berza


like a falling debris from a construction site
slowly committing suicide as it touches
the ground, again I looked up

to witness how words magnetized the tongue
to remain silent as if under oath,
the oath to abandon solitude

in its imprisoned cradle humming a familiar
song only the heart understands unless
the words are triggered to end,

to end the reign of fear inside the brain,
twisting and distorting the reality until
words under vertigo.
