The Words Unspoken

in silence, the solitude of wandering words unspoken
mindful wisdom, through the winding road untrodden
on a pavement, i follow a shadow of dreams forsaken
and live to believe in a paradise prevailed unforbidden
words beneath the lips that tremble whispers no more
the voice within forlorn dwells in the heart so to ignore
eyes with tears can only give an empty gaze and sigh
with a heavy heart in soul, no wings can take me high

like winds that ceaselessly blowing in the coldest breeze,
my heart longed a share of flame, warm to tow a freeze
with a slumbered soul as cold as ice, in time stood still
no words but the whispering silence of a wind blows chill

over and over i heard their cries into my consciousness
like roaring thunder upon the murmuring cloud’s darkness
along with nights spent in a lonesome nest of emptiness
only to dream a dream beyond the words of nothingness

now in those dreams, i behold the missing time unleashed
in silence, the unspoken words unveil what was promised
a corner for the soul to live once more for a heart be heard
from space and time in the bounty of hues still bewildered

beseeching my words to fly among the birds and be visible
from those eyes that can see through everything impossible
like reading a worn out page of the faded story from the past
contrived to live once more through the passing of time to last

from the echoes of the voice within some casts of shadow remain
like a stagnant water watching whatever comes in its domain
can never flow along the current of dull waters thus it shall retain
only in the darkness of its deep, groping and seeking the uncertain

let me leave these words unspoken buried underneath of nowhere
within the world that had long stopped whirling in time somewhere
where the moon, the sun, and the stars had forgotten how to shine
while rainbows stood by the horizon forbearing with clouds in benign

let the silence of words unspoken be the wings of the wind blowing
endowed heart and soul in a rhythm of the leaves endlessly rustling
bestowed once the missing time unleashed into my world of reverie
to live in the fantasy of disbelief beyond the fullness of its mysteryImage may contain: bird and outdoor
