If Only You Could Read Minds

Every sigh

brings more frustration

more tension in the air

but I can’t seem

to express

how I feel

so I sigh again

If only

you would sit still

quiet

and wait

basking in the silence

only then will you hear

my answer

The Poet Reclining by Marc Chagall

Tranquil silence is
No longer in my future
The cries of the dead
Ever screaming in my mind
We will never rest again
