Speak Inside

Does it remain that

the best of intentions

lose to all aforementioned

expressions of your once supposed

eager, waiting love?


Is there any time you

speak inside

hoping a true heart might hear?

Did you once realize, or perhaps even care


I forgive myself only when all seems clear?

Are you honestly beholden to subside

words whisper by whisper

held forever inside?

Has your soul ever shattered

falling to pieces from the mirror

smoked over in the event

a loving spirit beheld it?


I am blind to all I could recall

a foolishly incapable disbeliever

If you don’t speak inside at all

no words are lost; no love existed

and much too long have I spent

grieving for an empty space…
