Trapped in the corners of her heart
lies a song
seeking a sound, yearning for a voice, searching an expression
that beholds a sky unseen, unexplored.
Beaten rugged syllables clash and fail to form a word
every time the song tries an escape.
Since times long and forgotten
the song has been meandering its way to you
yet every time
it trembles in her throat
crackling in her voice
rasping in her breath
threatening her sanity
it cries to doors unseen
boulder-ing her path
break the facades of indifference
break the barriers
bring down the walls
your arms, your hearts
let me in…
Trust me, said the song, now almost shy
I bring joy, love and prosperity
And she looked away!
