"Unposed" - 1/20/07

if I never
picked up the phone again
just to see how you are
and listen with soul

would you ever reply?

if I never
wrote you another note
sealed with longing's wax
etched in leaves of gold

would you ever reach out?

ambivalence is grotesque
but it's true and your truth's
never touched me yet
despite my own's urging
to just let go

if I never
whispered another word
kindness-filled and brimming
with Passion's rose

would you part your mouth?

oh how tired, my eyes
oh how strained, my voice
questions seize my heart

cruel they stab, unposed
