letters I wrote
in some strange hieroglyphic script
only you could read
they started out black and bold
ending in a faded blue
only you understood
you could translate me
into what I never could be
yet the weight of the years
crush me to to dust
sighs of what was never to be
deafen in an uneven tune
that drown out all else
unraveled and unfulfilled
they sing to us in the dark
where we still cling to shadows
until the light washes us away
