emotional pantomime…

emotional pantomime

a wake
not the time
for
a family reunion
so
there will be
no
final goodbyes
what
we are
and
were
will remain
rusted
in ignorance
of
each other
choices
you
made
now
nothing
can free
the hands
of
time

dooming moral choice…

simple to ignore
the faces and lives destroyed
when your eyes are closed
if you ask for forgiveness
you’ll find that our ears are closed

 

reunion without reconciliation…

 

your words
of
understanding
and
forgiveness
cannot
be heard
for
the distance
between
the two of you
is
greater
than ever before
oh
there was a time
when
perhaps
your words
might have
touched
the heart
but
now
your words
cannot
be
heard
nor
can
the tracing
of
your tears
be
followed
by
those gentle hands
no
your words
cannot be
heard
even tho
you stand
just
above
the grave
