without a word

reach the light

without a word
I could leave
fade into shadows
at the end of another day
much like others have done
but I won’t
I won’t
knowing the pain
silence causes
the ache disappearing
turns and the waiting
breaking of it
leaves a scar
that never heals
a poison slowly killing me
take your fanfare
your bandaid pulling excuse
the backward plea
and sheepish after thought
I instead
steady on




One thought on “without a word
