Someday I Will Speak


“Hurt once and for all into silence…”
Leonard Cohen


You came to me the other night,
and smiled a smile that lingered
in my memory all day,
but the currawong and the sun’s song
were the music on my way.

             someday I will speak
             but not right now
             not yet
             I don’t know what I’d say

I waited for you again last night,
your eyes the stars in my eyes
as I watched the moon ascend,
but to be redeemed it has to seem
as if broken hearts can mend.

             someday I will speak
             but not today
             not now
             I have no love to send

Pavlos Andronikos
