SPEAK, a poem by Cynthia Baldwin, USA
Not Categorized Poems
Cynthia Baldwin, USA
When it comes,It isn't unexpected.We are eclipsed forA moment by the shadowOf everything we triedTo push behind us -A handful of uncertainMoments like spare changeWe can't afford to lose."I remember everything" -Whispered like aSecret in the dark.And your words crashAgainst my soul,Scattering shards ofBone dust on theParts of me onlyWords can reach."If things were different" -If... an unresolved chordAt the end of a hymn,A dangling "A" with no "men".But "if" doesn't preclude "when",And there isn't aStairway to heaven.Our prayers areMelancholy and nostalgic,Just a bite of frostTo make them stay -A dramatic dive off ofWhatever ship this isThat is sinking beneath us -Plunging into the deep.And when words won't come,The rest of you speaks.
