Best Poem of Ruth L. Rivers

***

Those who hold to silence; Do! Defend! :

I speak not! for the wear of words which do not mend

I speak not! for their depths which lack all mannerisms of time past

I speak not! for those who once had voice yet could not noise

I speak not! for time ever lost amidst shelves of the lesser rot

I speak not! for each whose young yet knew all hope and no tongue

I speak not! for small Abandon which so many had forgotten to love

I speak not! for pain that trembles in persons depths, at core and embers

I speak not! for losses in the aged and youth ...

Read the full of ***

Alone

So this is my pain and what does it matter?
It has drained me of life love and laughter.
I yearn to be invisible apart of the wall
standing or sitting just not noticed at all
Let me stay in my darkness filling the void
while desolate and hopeless start to recoil
Pushing me back into all anger and fear
cornering a useless self inches in each year
An empty so deep farther than all oceans
