i promised i would write a poem
patrick coyne

I promised I would write a poem
For you and I would,
If only I could forget the ones
 
That flame brightly in your eyes:
Light beyond comprehension,
Dark beyond explication,

A tenuous chiaroscuro
Too vague to reach and grasp
And trap in a web of words:

As if against a shining sky
There lingered silence
In the shadowy screams

Of numberless birds
