stop all the clocks

Stop all the clocks

Close your eyes

Till your chest stops heaving

empty sobs

soft “good byes.”


Unplug the telephones

Let ’em ring

Curl up in the corner

Stare out the window

At nothing


And let your tears pray

What your words can’t say

And you will find a way

To rise


And let your hands

Reach out

And let your tongue

Tell about

The love you once found

In his eyes
