Subtext

Come and read Sarah Melone’s moving poem “Subtext”!

Talking to the Clouds

sheisrisen

You wrote me in (a certain way)

I didn’t speak my dialogue (correctly)

Asked too many questions

Laughed in all the wrong places

Didn’t gaze up at you (as it was written)

I went off your manuscript

into a poem,

a painting,

a cloud

(and you couldn’t write me back)

The hero will always be hero (you hold the pen)

I’m standing on the balcony

I’m falling in the ocean

I’m setting with the sun

(not every story has a happy ending)
