the in-between

hours into days
days into weeks
weeks into months
the silence
loomed upon her words
she drove in and out
of each passing day
where once there were flights
of brilliant passion
released and revealed

translucent butterflies
now flew out
in frantic rush
hoping to be carried
on the wisdom of worn words
juxtaposed in unfamiliar patterns
seeking hues
to become
murals of expression
where love and hope
return once again
