Sondraís Poetry


To the Writers

I have read your words
heard them many times
felt them through the filter
of various emotions
as I repeated them
over and over
to the point I can no longer
write with my own

Where is my voice
How should I say my thoughts
when you have said everything
I feel so close to the truth
of what I could say
but I canít translate
feelings into new thought,
into new words

Should I fake mute
Or always be sure
to include a quotation
someone elseís line
someone elseís rhyme
I turn to the one I love
there is hope for me yet
because I know
you can never write
what I can say with one look
one kiss . . . one touch
