Speaking to Silence

6b68c20d-d44b-49bc-b0d1-a463d14b12cd

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.
