no reply by letson williams

                                     no reply
nothing at all
          nothing to hold
nowhere to fall
no regret
not even a sound
just a cold hard stare at
a cold hard ground
did you make a mistake
do you want to go back
did you pull on the rope
to tighten the slack
no defense
nothing to hide
           you don’t have to save face
          but you’ve got to decide

no reply
to the question of where
where are you now
how long are you there
no remorse
nothing was heard
nothing to hold
just something to learn
this is the hymn
that won’t get me to her
                  too late to save face
                with only words
no regard
not even a smile
     just a cold hard stare
          from your cold blue eyes
