I want to reach out...


Poem Commentary

Written for a friend of mine...

I want to reach out...

I want to reach out,
Haven't seen you in so long,
You're here,
In front of me,
You're sad,
Eyes full of tears,
Let me help you,
I scream,
Yet my lips don't move,
I want to help,
I stay yet,
I watch you fall,
Clatter to the ground,
And there I am,
Lying beside you,
Cold yet warm,
The ground beneath your face,
Rest at last,
Sleep gentle one,
Until the moon again rises,
And calls to us.

That silent scream seems to prevail a lot in my history.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
