fleeing words… by Toni L.A. Cross


don’t take my words away

and leave me in the dark

please let these syllables stay

alphabet so crisp and stark

don’t run from me I pray

fly flitting like a lark

speaking come what may

these phrases sullenly bark

i long and grope for day

for a yellow sunrise mark
