the Word

all the people i’m not
all the things i cannot
on grey-sky-days
like this
they weigh
weigh
weigh
me down

out of these depths
i cry
but my voice
disappears
in the tide
wave after wave
of untethered me
drowning out
the small
still
sound

i reach for words
to anchor
my soul
i float on the form
they provide

but their black on white arms
are no permanent home
i’m anchored
in one Word
alone
