Apologetic Flow

the moments when a few words fail
to be enough to reveal all that needs
to be uncovered or discovered inside
of what we  already knew to be true
but were too hesitant to form the words
in a coherent enough manner for some
one other than me to follow after
like the thousands traipsing after Boone
through the Cumberland gap to a destiny
or at least to a ledge where we are now
the only ones standing staring into the stars
far across the continental reaches
of everything I needed to say to you
but my taciturn words were not enough
