Unspoken, Unsent, Unfinished (Magic and Alchemy)

 


If only we could hear
the unspoken words,
swallowed just before they
could escape the trembling lips...

If only we could read
the unsent messages and letters
languishing in the draft folder
or crumpled up in a dusty corner...

We could dot the i's 
Cross the 't's
Prevent many stories
from staying unfinished
Prevent many connections
from fading into oblivion.

Alas! The white pages 
have long turned yellow
Yet the ship could not
reach its shore.
