Her Words
It took a little while

Before she would try

To finally just relax

And speak her mind

Those words being left 

Behind in the years

Of utter apprehension 

Entangled in such fear

Found their way now

Into the forefront boldly

To express more freely

With uncensored vocabulary 

She chose words carefully 

Always bearing in mind

The vast  importance

Of ensuring they were kind 

Being very accustomed 

To her silence in the past

Caused her every word

To have him at a loss

Her words were so tender

And they were clear and true

That he was somewhat afraid

Of what else she was able to do
