Is there some place, some realm or frame of time
that is slightly shadowed in grey?
Is there a word or phrase that I can use
to express that I am lost?
Is there a space within your vision, something you can see
that could silently help you understand?
Is there a question I can ask of you
that would make me feel at peace?
From one place to another
somewhere between here and there,
I am supposed to know
from whom and to who I’ve become.
In words never spoken and voices unheard
with ears that cannot translate the sound,
I am supposed to engage conversation
when it feels like I’m speaking in tongues.
Do you know me know? I surely don’t
and I’m trying to dig my way in,
In pages left unwritten and songs still unsung
a whisper the only sound that I hear.
