Hour Ninteen: Voices


just be still, and listen

there are voices you may have never heard of.

I know, the frantic waves are overpowering, sending a shudder.


just be still, and listen.

someone out there calls upon you.

someone out there, smothered with white bands.


just be still, and listen

close your eyes, and go where she is confined.

there are voices beyond the happy chatter.

there are eyes that have been deprived of salmon-colored skies.


just be still, and listen

her controlled sobs are loud enough from the shell

just be still, and listen

she pleads to break free,

to release her into the sea.
