Silently Drowning


Silently Drowning 

if I lose my words,

realize the frailty of me;

will you stand right there?


when I lose my words,

accepting this fragile mold,

with boldness and fears;


can I look to you?

collapsing in protective

arms, still holding me;


after I have lost

all of my words; then, will you

hear my eyes speak tales?


And! as I quiet,

my soul’s chaos, stirring through

maddening silence –


my retinas pull

into spherical cloaked paths,

are you still with me?


I drown my eyes up –

to the light I hope; is you

dig my strings, hear me?


my drowning words sink

But! my eyes spread pages, and

they chatter volumes


(quietly then, gone

under the grasp of fearsome

thoughts, you will let go)
