times in silence

Posted to Action Poetry




will you hear me if i whisper
will you see me if i stand still
will you cover me with blankets
--as the sun drops over the mountains?

i've come to see you
and tell you things
nobody has ever told

i've stood still so
you could glimpse me
and know what i stand for

has all this been for naught
or should i YELL and SCREAM
and shatter the illusion..?

sorry to leave you guessing -
some questions don't need
a string of answers tied
across a wrinkled brow

it is just the voice
and your lips i long for
as i share your presence
in these times of silence
