Words

Words
I once knew by heart
have lost their meaning.

I am hurting,
looking for answers,
longing for a helping hand.

My soul
smashed to pieces,
barely recognizable now.

Sorrow
has taken hold,
I am its hostage.

Silence
is all that remains
when words cease to be.

Uncle Meridian The PoetBay support member heart!
I cherish the conscious and deliberate cadence of the poem, careful and sure-footed at the same time. The short, shapely lines serve the poem well.
