Words

Words like death

Remind me of life

And your absence...

you were once here

A dark and stormy night

With fierce winds

Directs an unlucky branch 

Still on the ground

 

as the tree stands tall

 

A sad song

About the sun shining

Is left unsung

 

How to remember lyrics

Amidst such grief?

It’s easier to forget

The unknown

 

the words

 

Words like hope, imagination

Lost, afraid, alone 

all words that would not be 

needed

If it were not 

for confidence 

And Repetition over and over 

 

and 

 

Words like religion

Packed with prayers

Just good intentions 

 

Words words words

 

Are the masks 

That hide our souls..

The true being

Behind existence

And yet the words

Left unspoken

 

Do not mean a thing 

To anyone

This poem is about: 
Me
