his name escapes my lips

and i stumble

wishing i had muttered

or even mumbled

then this would have been easier

to cover up

and i would not

have to see the shadow

of sorrow darken your face

and still look away

as if nothing has

been said.

    So simple in the dark sorrow, my favorite quote is, “I would not have to see the shadow of sorrow darken your face”, because you tilt your head down whenever you are sad. It’s a different way to express, i love it! I’ll be following 🙂
