it won’t be kept entombed

it won’t be kept entombed

there is a small hallow
that your voice
comes from, barely heard,
misunderstood

as if your account of the day
was a description
of a hallucination
the listener cannot
grasp the colors
so it ends up
a jumble grey sentences
layered on tissue

the sounds that lifted you
become a muffled
soundtrack of foreign whispers

if they bother to try to feel
what you felt
it is with hands wrapped in gauze

but your voice
won’t be kept entombed
if there is even
a hint of grace

it won’t be kept entombed
