What Words and Wounds

What words remain unspoken
Or feelings left out of reach
What hearts have been broken
Where departed lovers forced a breach
What dreams are now fading
Out of breath, run out of steam
Things we hoped for, cascading
Away, ripped apart at the seams

What wounds remain unhealed
Covered up by skin and bone
What lips have been long sealed
By things we’re forced to condone
What innocence has been lost
By deeds done for love or war
The dark of the night has left a cost
That too many folk don’t abhor
