Words You Never Say

June 26, 2008
By Meredith Kolda, Austin, TX

Undetermined black market girls
Leave no broken hearts
Hair done up in curls
They’re told they’ve done their part

Old man who loved and shared his story
Now lies beneath your feet
After you shot down his glory
He thrives beneath your streets

Making words you say the worst
Forming unsure words by day
You never say I Love You first
The things you never say

You as you are is as you ever were
The lives you always spun
Like leaves from trees they burn
To this last song you sung
