The Reasons Falter

Do you write the words

or do they write you

 

Are the feelings tattered

or something new

 

Do you speak in tongues

or in muted silence

 

Are the moments sacred

or void of credence

 

Do the questions answer

themselves in time

 

Do the phrases mingle

but never rhyme

 

Do the reasons falter

excuse to reign

 

Do the moments linger

—tomorrow framed
