After all these year… Words fail me

How can I carve your name
On the trunk of this tree?
That will be here…after

I can’t even write it

With no one listening…
Not even myself
I whisper these words
It’s all I can do

Sometimes

After all these years
Look at me here
Got this love song stuck
in my throat…

The weight of the world
on my shoulders
I can’t let go

Words fail me

None of this makes sense
Except maybe to you
I try to share…

Words fail me

I hate love songs
You wonder why
Words fail me

Sometimes they do

  1. It’s like words fall from the sky, hang in the trees, blow in the wind, ripple in the streams. I reach for them, but words always seem to escape me. Your poem is beautiful, yet sad, Michelle.
