Ambiguous Silence

It wants to be known.
It has been all alone.
For far too long, no one,
No one has heard the song.

Each word is carved
Calculated, starved
To mean something!
To somehow belong.

It wants to be heard.
To you, that must seem absurd.
But it has been silent
For far too long.

Each syllable must mark
Its syntax so stark
It must use skill
To startle the throng.

It is silent
It has the words do the speaking.
Ambiguity is the name.
How can it be wrong?
