Unfinished Letter



Letters strewn on the mosaic floor.
Yellowed papers like autumn leaves
Littered around. Blank letters, weaving
Obscure idiom of suppressed griefs.
Blank letters like blank verse, rumpled
And blemished. Unsaid words reveal
Undone works. A tomb unborn
For a soul undead and wounds unhealed.
Alphabets of unfinished gravestones
Accumulate on the cemetery of parchment.
Moss of despair gathers on the obelisk
Of expression. Confused vocables sing lament.
