No Other Way But Poetry

one day
you’ll open my eyes
and read them
like a book

know my secret
from the way
i move,
hear it
on your breath

one day
you’ll understand
all the words i spoke
and all the words
i didn’t speak

read your name
in the poems
in which
you remained

for an instant
your heart
will twist and turn
with my anguish

and then you’ll see:

there was
no other way
to tell this tale

no other way

and silence
