Wordless

by mandaceehb

What do people see, I wonder

Behind glassy eyes and impassive expression

Why do they ignore those who sit alone

Instead choosing to accompany those

With which the value of companionship has run dry

Is it so hard to reach a hand

Initiate a word

To the ones who dare not to speak

And start a fire

Within the hearts of the wordless-lipped?
