Into the Silence

the currents breaking in

find words

that can’t be washed

away

 

the pain, though tossed

in still waters, is not lost: it

spreads in the black

absence of you

 

and lingers

 

with the obstinacy

of rock-clinging things

 

how do I grasp these words

to cut through the gray matter

 

suspended into the silence

 

the mass of it rises

up slowly, blearily

 

mutely screaming

 

if i surface,

i’ll lose my hold

on you

 

and all these words

these words

 

will be forced

into being
