In Word or In Silence

In Word or In Silence 

Is it ?,  disappointment, pain, heartache, be in need of words like Unicorns – death in confinement – restricted to herds needing release, insight, needing to be free,
needing their life to take wing, needing to let be, 
let loose upon the melancholy winds of expression –
ebbing, flowing from subconscious to conscious confession –
that upon the broken heart, lies with such pain
for one who wanted – one more time – to try again
to know the pleasures, the joys of pure love
along with all else that carries one, light and high above.

Is it?, joy, fullness, happiness, be in need of silence 
like a light summer breeze dancing upon a picket fence
floating by, stick in hand, strumming out a joyous tune
for lovers dancing to life as one under a full moon
in silent heart that knows all and needs no word
to say what the spirit, the soul, the heart already heard.
