S: Silence #NaPoWriMo



How can I be silent,

How can silence fill my howl

The tears I do not cry

The grief

I wear like a cowl


That I borrowed from you

As you lay dying

The words I left unsaid

My truths

Exposed and cloying


Patterns upon the bed

Where I watched over you

As you fought to live

My thoughts

Unheard, untouched, untrue


How can I not be silent

No words to share or give

How can then my silence

Give you

Cause to grieve?
