zoey & samuel



what is unsaid resonates clearly

yet there are times

when words are wanted


moses has spent many words

and still 

zoey cannot find words in reply


silence   too   may resonate

samuel is gone 

without a word   without reason


or hint of reason

the suddenness was profound

it is hard to live with that degree of uncaring


and uncaring   surely

is what samuel was   and is




samuel   driven

by dreams

beyond sanity's weak hold



an act he neither

remembers nor understands


returning is a fear so vast   

so deep

that he is left paralyzed


musket and cannon   whizz

of hot lead and ball

reverberates by day   echoes by night


odor of death permeates his being

he is undone

I just moved back to my country after seven years in America and I don't know man, this line:

"returning is a fear so vast

so deep

that he is left paralyzed"

just fucking gutted me. I love it.
