Yours Truly

January 8, 2008
By Caitlin Ferguson, Southborough, MA

Those dark, tired eyes,
Aged, but never forgotten,
Those kind, hushed words,
Scattered but never forgotten,

Sweetness weaves through your voice,
A gentle hand to keep me from falling,
Emptiness weaves through your voice,
A lacking heart to keep me from losing,

Your quiet, patterned foot fall,
Keeps me ever following, tracing,
Your rigid, diluted imperfection,
Keeps me ever following, tracing,

Those light, wary eyes,
Young, yet never remembered,
Those harsh, loud-spoken words,
Aligned, yet never remembered.
