Expressive expressions

expressly unexpressed

in bottomless chasms


Mind refusing to delve

on feelings detrimental

recoils from retrieval

pretending instead, to be a broken sieve.

Lips once powerfully articulate

played on words as on a lute

now unable to translate

remain powerlessly mute.

Without help of rising tides

Helplessness drowns the insides

And expressive expressions languish

to the spiritโ€™s deep anguish.
