Finding words

sometimes words-
are elusive, evasive
hiding in the shadows 
of the murky depths of hurt

sometimes words-
are heavy, suffocating
refusing to form
in the deep gulf of grief

sometimes words-
are a caress, a touch
healing the torn,
the rifts of the heart

sometimes words-
are a memento, a gift
hidden away with love
in crevices of time

sometimes words-
may be all I have
when palings are sharp 
and distances, vast
