No Filter

No Filter

you have no filter

said my friend

whatever is in there

it just comes out

and it’s true

my filter is broken

my gate is unhinged

my heart is on my sleeve

there for all to see

and usually still bleeding

though I am equally capable

of wounding other hearts, too

I have said some things

that I would take back now

if I could, right now, even now,

after all these years

I have rarely not said

what I think

even when just thinking it

was all I needed to do

perhaps what I need

is not so much a filter

as a mute button
