• A box full of string
    reminds you of things left undone.
    An empty closet
    tells you of what is gone.
    A sky full of clouds
    suggests you should pay attention
    to things you never noticed before.

    A letter left unopened
    answers none of your questions.
    A silent, empty room
    shrieks to be filled with life.
    A smile only half meant for you
    whispers a secret
    you don't want to listen to.

    A staircase without creaky steps
    says nothing at all.
    An untied shoelace
    tells of what is to come.
    An unread, dust-laden book
    cries out to you
    when there is nothing left for it to say.
