Poem - Tone Out Loud

The poem “Tone Out Loud” is based on a meme that stated “sounds bad when you say it out loud”, with the subtitle “things I’ve said in therapy #9”.

Tone Out Loud

The tone out loud may betray
the calm realized deep within
perhaps the gods could forgive
what the voice will express

that placid place of good intent
abandoned when the sounds relent
tumbled from the inner depths
to damn the sounds then expressed

somewhere in the journey’s breadth
the words transformed to manifest
ill intent for all involved
even while the angels cringe

vowels twisted around state
exceptions to the smiling face
what’s said outside would be withdrawn
if only time could be reversed.
