Speaking to Silence


choose words that would

convey meaning

in eyes when together.


questions arise

only in the mind

how to say.


did this accentuate

shattered fragments

that remain in a heart


might a word possibly

speak to misery

enough for a reader


to wonder why

she hears a cry

each morning try


today though she knows just where

yet wanders outside into the cold

knowing still … will he always try.
