So Many

So many words left unsaid

mundane hellos and goodbyes

advantageous askings, whispered kisses under blue skies

banal statistics awash in the crackling wind

unread messages left on the pin board, not yet unpinned

 

So many words left unspoken

questions of invention

breached rules of customs and social conventions

the crushed declaration swept under the rug

the frigid feud bled into the dormant promises

 

So many places left unvisited

so little of the world that is sought

how many billions of people you will never know

how many what ifs you’ll never have the answer to 

how many of the great perhaps,

many doors left unopen

too many regrets to be had.

 

So many words left unspok—
