20.Aug { Poetry } – After All

After all – she does hold your pain

the rain from your eyes water the sidewalk with your emotion

flowers bloom with pieces of you

hurt provokes cries from the soul that the body masks

the face masks

staring at many moons wondering how long will it last

…and after it all – she holds your sanity

thoughts line the inner-wall of your brain cavity until it cradles your gray

thoughts drive your actions – the words we don’t say

and after it is all said and done – she is standing there, waiting for the sign

the words you give her have sound but are void of meaning…
