Flock of Words


A change in your voice was all that I heard
A quavering breath a pause in a word
A shadow that suddenly covered my eyes
A ripple of water quite smooth otherwise

You try to go back and pave over the hole
Where an intake of breath had punctured my soul
Let me know let me know I need to know

A moment of silence it now seems absurd
That I learned so much from a pause in a word
Every bird on the wing leads the others along
Inside your flock of words something went wrong

I don’t think that I was expecting a lot
I just saw that I’m passed being one couldn’t fly
Let me go let me go I need to go
