Unsaid Words

Cognitive simplicities reveled in each line Nothing is impeccably right, nothing is fine I reach the path where a lie is justified by words By the time it is finished they flee like birds Into a path where their tattered wings can heal Where darkness cringes and the hidden scrolls seal I need to find the light where the rhymes deem right I need to see how much I can bear it this night I am cradled by unsaid words every solitary day If only the words I write that linger could take the pain away I want to see you again, but as I unfold within These undaunted subtleties tear away the skin You are left in bear bone while I am still alone A crowd surrounds me as my mind begins to roam Scratching out a line to make room for the lie, The truth stammers and withers as the birds fly by

    Isn't it funny that the words don't live up to what you want? Nevertheless, I think you are so very good at this writing thing. You expressed this so well. I have often started writing about something, and it seems to me the constraints and words and my own limits caused me to divert. You have something very special.

    I was moved by this write...the peeling of the skin and reaching to the bone...incredible imagery used to get to the heart of the matter! Proud of you. You've got great talent. :)
