I am alone in Silence

I speak, no one listens

Watch the water glisten

I am alone in silence.


Begging for help from you

Maybe you should watch, too.

I am alone in silence.


Do you, friend, hear my pleas?

Sit, and watch out for bees.

I am alone in silence.


You didn't.  Watch the pond.

Saw hands grasp at the fronds.

You are alone.  Silence.
