POEM TITLE: SOMETHING MORE

Like there’s something hidden deep below the ocean’s salty shore,

It is hidden deep beneath your heart – yes; there’s something more.

 

Like an unfinished book that someone has yet to explore,

It is an unfinished product of your speech – yes there’s something more.

 

As if the mighty lion has lost the will to roar,

You too lose the will to speak of something – something more.

 

As if a dam has blocked the path from which the rivers pour,

You block the flow of emotions and thoughts – still; there’s something more.

 

Why do you offer the lonesome silence?

Yet ignore what’s lost at your own expense?

 

Your eyes – a deep ocean of sorrow and grief.

Your tongue – like earthquakes so violent and strong, but brief.

Your voice – a sound of trumpets that tumble down or soar.

Your thoughts – a mystery, a puzzle, unsolved because there’s something more.
