Words of Embarrassment

There are so many things that embarrass you

You would never tell a soul, let those secrets die with you

Sometimes the feeling causes discomfort so intense

That you cannot even put it in words that make sense

You have a vague perception of your shame

But you cannot even privately give it a name..

You learn to suppress it, but it does not disappear ever

In some recess of your mind it continues to fester..


Then one day serendipitously you read

Words that describe exactly what you need

To express the source of your embarrassment

It ends up being cathartic to some extent

Your unnamed discomfort has been validated

By the writer, who has unknowingly your feelings articulated..
