• Reaching up and out
    Leaves the mid range open
    For tearing in or out
    The words yet unspoken
    Sinew stretching reach
    Bone popping grasp
    And yet the hands still empty
    Silent voice worn to rasp
    Leaning, leaning outward
    Screaming, screaming in
    Boiling, straining fluids
    Stretching, tearing skin
    And out and out and skyward
    But away from pumping thin
    Searching up and outward
    Neglects the one within
