Bear Alone

Sometimes I must weep

And howl and wail and moan

Once in a while I even groan

I try not to cry out but

If I can’t catch my voice

There escapes a shout.

When the slightest movement is Hell

I am compelled to yell.

But I know should I begin to scream

I shall scream

And scream

And scream

And scream

And never in the infinite nothing chaos

Shall the wordless word stop.
