Mute

My voice is stilled
broken in the dark
night of the word

Longing for morning
silenced for song
nor pitch nor tone

Love and light still run
through the same channels
that feed my heart

Pressed against the blank
indifference all around
nor ear nor mouth open

Speak to me now
while I am alone
in blank silence.
