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
