Alone

 

We try, we struggle, we strain. Longing for someone to know

Words what are words as they are tossed to and fro

Bard. Hanging. Waiting

They linger, grasping

Why can’t I get in? Why can’t they see?

An invisible wall in front of me

Words, and thoughts, and longings, muffle behind layers of fear

Are they theirs, are they mine? I can almost hear

Depth and fullness, understanding, peace

Two dreams drifting

Missing

Fulfillment just out of reach

If only the striving, the seeking, would cease

Not forever, just long enough to truly hear

To tear down the walls and sink into my ears

Around, around and around we go. A merry-go-round of eloquent pros

Pretty

Useless

Wrapped up in a bow

No wonder we feel so alone

 

Words what are words as they are tossed to and fro
