A Visit Of Silence



we sat... staring silently at
one another
without saying a word
our eyes transfixed into imaginative thoughts
a vigil of the souls betwixt mother and son
if ever a painful moment in my life
it is now
to see my mother sitting there
all cried out
knowing, im the center of her pain
those eyes...those beautiful brown eyes
staring intently into my soul,
as if...searching for the unknown
the source of my proclivities.
for i am
far from that which she envision me to be
and what per-chance i am to never know
but that she love's me still...and i
she
