Handprints On Plexiglass

byRandi Grail©

How many times did you cry my name
before the new day conquistador
heard your voice and decided
that enough is enough?

Is enough not enough,
when padded cell embrace
and holy haze
hallows the hollow habits
closer again closer?

You know that sound better than me,
the the tin can echo of unbending steel
coming closer closer closer.

Closer than you ever been before
to my ear, please
sing it ring it say it all
right now.

But now, right now,
not even a whisper
escapes.

How many times did you cry my name
before,
then,
ago,
when it did not quite matter?

When this anti-matter solid wall
of nothingness between
raised it's irrefutable membrane
of so close
but so far away.

How many times
will you cry my name,
and watch my face
cry yours?

Just a wingbeat
an eternity away.
