Looking for Words We Never Said


                    —in echo of words we never said
     
     
     When words we're meant to hear are left unsaid,
     if we can't trust our hearts to hear what's true
     what meanings in their silence get misread?

     The voices of old ghosts sigh lies inbred
     in drowned-out echoes, mute as though on cue
     when words we're meant to hear are left unsaid.

     Where whispered allegations fly widespread 
     on false witnesses' breathless point of view,
     what meanings in their silence get misread?

     Demonic beasts inspire dumbfounded dread
     of hope and trust, doomed victims they'll pursue
     when words we're meant to hear are left unsaid.

     When our close conversations have long fled,
     what pauses fill the moments they've passed through?
     What meanings in their silence get misread?

     Listen. What goes on inside my head?
     What thoughts can't I express the way you do?
     When words we're meant to hear are left unsaid
     what meanings in their silence get misread?

    Unsaid words are always misread…and what is said leave much room for misinterpretaion since the message is not complete.
