Voices off

Each thought
has a voice
an accent
all its own
some stutter
with apparent insecurity
yet reveal
a truth profound
if one takes the time
to listen well,
while another
strong and loud
begins to falter
as it evidences
a lack of reason
despite its will
to be heard primarily,
there are thoughts too
those almost silent
merely a hum it seems
a nod or shake
of the head
not so much
with flowered
verbosity or
colourful prose,
but with a glance of
involuntary pupils
a wayward crooked smile
in unguarded moments
above all
these thoughts unheard
speak volumes.
