Hear Me With Your Eyes

She grabs her curious pen
and that 80 sheet guarded notebook
on who's unblackened pages
she scribbles her heart
finding comfort to
release her soul
onto paper rather than
from movements of tongue

verbal is useless
words often go
misinterpreted,
ignored, avoided,
interrupted.
Ink is her voice,
her mind, her self,
let her be heard
through these
Unspoken Words.

This is the second poem of yours I have added to my favorites. Very well written. Explains just how I feel. Good fitting title as well. (:

:) i like this. your choice of words is amazing.
and what good is it to be speaking when all your words get blown away and no one has the ear to try and make them stay. You never really know who's actually listening to the things you have to say.
