I lay quietly
Eyes open
Hearing everything
Aknowledging nothing

And I waite

For a sign
Wanting nothing
Expecting everything

Waiting for the warmth of the sun
To forgive this chill

I lay quiet
Lips held tight
Wanting to finish a forgotten sentence
Shouts of regret
Shouts of dismay

I lay quiet
Hearing everything
Acknowledging nothing
Held in my throat by lingering fear

  1. After reading this piece, I became lost in wondering what the author was thinking and feling when he put these words down and I became more aware of my own humanity
