THEN:
“Shut up!”
“Be quiet!”
“Don’t you make a sound!”
“Don't speak a word!”
“Don’t talk about it – to anyone!”
“If you ever say anything...”
“Don’t you dare tell – or else…”
I can’t make any noise or someone will know.
If anyone finds out I will be in big trouble.
They would never believe me.
They would never understand.
I am tongue-tied, gagged, mute, dumb, voiceless,
Unable to utter a thing.
Vocal paralysis has set in.
I may never talk again.
All I hear is:
"BE QUIET!"...

I learned that lesson well
And obeyed it to the letter!
It is hard to break that habit and taboo.

NOW:
“Open up!”
“Tell me what you like.”
“Does this feel good?”
“Just say what you want.”
“Describe what you are feeling…”
"You must talk about it!"
What I’m FEELING?!?!?!
What I LIKE?!?!?!
What feels GOOD?!?!?!
TALK ABOUT IT?!?!?!
What does that even mean?
I CAN”T SAY…

A great expression of what its like to have to open up whats been held in for so long. Like pulling teeth from an alligator.
Good job Lee.
