1 there is always a sigh when the warring is done amd torn through me, a shudder a downward glance, a shiver An emptiness pleading to be filled A silence keening across the fields like a killdeer lost to the midnight.

There is always a silence that curls my tongue, the blood that heaves in my ears and What,

what are these tears that Blur my eyes, What is all of this light between us?

2 Even the most distant of stars have no voice, for no one can hear them, even though they resound yet no one has seen their shimmering.

Where has the warmth of my childhood hidden Where are the green leaves, where is the dove On the line that cooes to the glorious morning Where are the hills and the paths leading there, the dew on the grass, the unceasing summer? Love so fragrant and sweet flows from these memories unbidden.

Where is the innocence I have never known? I have grappled with you until my hips are broken, I have danced with you until my fingers are torn, And here

here, is the shudder, the dull roar, the downwardness falling, the emptiness, the anguish. A grief is as endless as sand of the sea.

3 my hunger is that of a bird and its keening lost in the silence, lost to the midnight and weeping.
