I wrote this poem about the power of unspoken gestures.
Our little moments play
Like memories on a screen.
In one scene, only speech,
Awaking in its cage,
Emerges from its scene
To say, "I love you, but...".
Those little moments cut
The body into feed,
And I sink in my guts.
Your little facial tics
Unravel the minutes
Into hours as I clutch
For something more than this;
For one more small moment,
However small and broken,
To be my crucifix
Among the dark omens
In grooves around your eyes.
I'd found and lost the light
In that little moment.
I'd found and lost meaning in life.
Must I find it again?
