The unspoken

Some words are unspoken
As ineffable is the joy
If you seek to find meaning
Look into the bearer's eye
When words fail to stand by you
Your tears cannot lie

Some words are unspoken
As the parlance stymies your try
The misunderstanding, the distress and the confusion
Leaves you high and dry
That others you trusted cannot fathom
And you founder to find out why

Some words are unspoken
As there is no shoulder to cry
There is no dearth of people around you
But a friendly hand is not nearby
Such words cause a wistful desire
But fade away as time goes by

Some words are unspoken
As the listener has kissed you goodbye
No money no power can restitute
No divine intervention can try
Such words remain with you lifelong
Until when you die

May be its an intrusion, but happened to reach your blog. Listened to a few entries. Rather than calling you old, I would say, you are getting wiser.

subtle poetry in the way u express it in places like:

When words fail to stand by you
Your tears cannot lie
(did u flick this form shakira?)

Some words are unspoken
As the listener has kissed you goodbye
