Better Left Unspoken


I stood facing the wind listening1
searching for echoes
striving to hear
the lost laughter
of mistaken luncheons
and forbidden phone calls
running my fingers
through the undertones
of careful conversation
where everything is said

I never said
I'm not afraid of pain
I just don't fear it
as much as apathy

So now I will try
to keep things unvoiced
to hide a half
of my dreaming whole
better to agonize
over not expressing
then for you to leave
I'll keep desires secret
even from you
say words under my breath
into the wind
that invisibly whispers
through your hair
and then you are mine in victorious feeling2
