Your Silent Face

Your silent face

says words

no breath could pass

Glazed eyes

cold and silent

stare into a naked

eternity

Shadows

still and

quiet

I walk with you,

I walk with you

I hold your

sterile hand

We are on the line

so gently we

hang

oscillating away

in our existence

It has come to this

our beginning

It came to this

our end

Your silent face

does no more

than smile
