Two of these have been posted elsewhere by me some months ago but I thought of making it something more and here it is…
For the Hexahedron. 6 sides. The 6 sides of the cube. <(“)
You’ve been given this gift of words and feeling,
Happiness, sadness and all our hearts reeling
I’ll hang on to your every word,
Every thought and wisdom learned
You string together such a perfect song
I could listen forever, please go on…
You’ve been there with me,
Face to face and worlds apart
At times too early and times too late
But you’ve been there,
Words of humor, words of pain
You took them in with nothing to gain.
But you listened.
Listened till someone called your name.
And even then nothing changed.
The Listener, listening.
Hidden deep, deep inside
I saw it
A fleeting glance,
You brush it away,
You are afraid,
You say nothing
And I don’t know,
I thought I saw it,
for a moment there,
I thought I saw it.
I know I felt it.
We sat there together
An arm’s lengths apart
Connected by the same feeling
You spoke of things that hurt
Spoke of things bitter and cold
They felt like they would eat your soul
And all the warmth would disappear
Leaving us a heap on the floor
And then we’d hold on to each other’s hearts
Keeping each other from falling apart
When the words failed, you waited
For the sound of the door
for the footsteps that would follow
For the voice that would speak
But the voice is cold and weak
The voice has nothing left to give
It is empty, a shadow of what it used to be like
Only a whisper that brings the dark
When it used to say Stay in the Light.
Remember the lost and broken,
We are still that,
Nothing more and nothing less,
The misplaced just drowned out by their surroundings,
The forgotten put into albums placed on dusty shelves
Feelings and goodbyes are in our way now,
Stopping me from saying goodbye to you
The only person that had mattered
The person that showed me every side of the cube
The listener of words.
Still lost, still broken
All that and alone.
