the silence of acquiescence



for countless years

I have craved the words, for a verse,

some eloquent prose

while remaining tongue tied
I found only the capitulation of love

resonating withered woes

no inspired cordial cadence

only syllables shredded, and shorn

as useless, in a reiterated gasp
of  echoed past
agony of torment
in love and life

limp, slack
hanging in  juxtapose
dwelling in the dark sentences of night
unfulfilled in the silence of acquiescence

Sounds a lot like my shitty poetry! ;) I can relate, nice sting to it.  As always profound and very well written!
