(a poem for all who harbor an unspoken apology)

It rattled across the silence
Absorbed vacant chords
Overtook lonely minutes
Replayed words unsure

It sought absolution
In moments unrealized
Searched for a pardon
From lips paralyzed

It explored answers
Begged for a reprieve
Waited as you paused
Cried and did grieve

Apology left unsaid
Laid upon the floor
Waiting for your words
To make life as before

~ Nikki Anne Schmutz
