Searching for word~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa


 

 

Searching for word

My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word
searched nations and cultures in history
but none can be found throughout the whole world

the pen, the brush, my tongue- a useless sword
what medium to use to tell my story
My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word

no string, wind or beat can find the right chord
music itself ends in futility
My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word

when what is wordless my heart has just poured
it was not to plead for your sympathy
My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word

but this thing in my heart cannot be stored
no box to hide it for eternity
My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word

for bit by bit my heart has been devoured
slowly by unknown monstrous entity
My overwhelmed heart needs to find the word
