what was lost

What can you say
In the face of the unwanted, so hidden
Shame covers the skin like a film
Now disconnected from perfection
Choosing life, yet left speechless, alone
To grow this seed, an unexpected life
You must hesitate to talk
Leaving secrets to burn in the fire
If I had the words from the ashes
What would they look like
Tell me what could lift this burden
That no one should have ever had to hold
