week 306 ~ words launched from gaping mouths pile up around

with 2 comments

me.306words launched from gaping mouths pile up around
us errant paper airplanes valiantly
striving to carry big ideas sound
gesture belief shot precariously
into the void to die there purpose spent
success was never guaranteed we know
but still we hoped our hard-birthed missives went
toward a sympathetic ear to show
their merit thereby demonstrating ours
making the days years of this journey worth
their cost lost pursuit of secret dream hours
that haunt us knowing what-if time on earth
limits everything as these words now fall
silent perhaps not mattering at all
