one voice crying

just feel like revisiting this old one today….

one voice crying

she sends out her signal

into empty oceans

hoping that she will be heard

and that the song returns

            but it seems there are no others

            swimming in these depths

her emanations go unechoed

as endlessly they travel

unimpeded, unreceived

seeking substance

            lost at sea

she rises for a breath

making unexpected

waves upon my face

a slap

before she slips

back into silent solitude

and though my surface settles

from her stirring

i am moved by her despair

and for a moment ponder

growing legs

            until i feel the crushing weight

            of beaching her
