when there are no more words to speak

when there are no more words to speak
when there are no more words to hear
our bodies fail us
our minds fail us
silence…cries…empty
when there are no more words to hear
when there are no more words to speak
our minds fail
our bodies fail
silence…empty…cries
insipid looks of stupid
dismissive people smug at a glance
shrug unaware of their irrelevance
their minds fail them
their bodies fail them
out loud voices muted muting mute
when there are no more words to speak
when there are no more words to hear
silence…empty…cries
silence…cries…empty
dismissive people smug at a glance
shrug unaware of their irrelevance
insipid looks of stupid
their bodies fail them
their minds fail them
when there are no more words to hear
when there are no more words to speak
my body fails me
my mind fails me
silence…empty…cries
silence…cries…empty
there are no more words to hear
there are no more words to speak

when there are no more words to speak

Artist's Description

I haven’t a clue or idea how many times some dark or dismissive thoughts has etched its way across my mind. Thinking in a circle of maddening madness about some real or imagine slight from someone or some embarrassing moment that happened a long time ago…stop the planet I have to get off…only to find out it is all in my mind…or is it. A mole hill turning into Mount Vesuvius ready to unleash god knows what and why…? That unforgiving internal mental dialogue that is just there like a sliver wedged into the thin skin of the ego…sigh…in the long run it doesn’t matter and in reality it never did…only when that cruel demon pricks and pokes with its needle that stitches and binds the mind and body that fails us as we shrivel wrinkle and bend to the crippling of old age…why so much angst over so many little things…we ain’t coming back this way again.
From the Book of Ruminations
