silence reborn

by Jason Alan

her liquid eyes burn strong

lifting light from ecstasy

with an impure heart

human, loveless, beguiling

silence bends the air

rending the wind

with its impartial glare

anguished cries, distant yet clear

take the silence away

they cease abruptly

and the silence is reborn

once again

he sits alone in the dark, wondering

why she is loveless

a woman so beautiful

so sweet

the answer hangs near, he knows

but is invisible

and he cannot reach it
