Phoenix stares at me and smiles,

And I can see the thoughts formulate…

A precious moment,

She struggles without words…

To embrace her humanity.

Her frustration is palpable…

Making sounds unintelligible

But heart-felt,

She has so much to say…

But the synapses dangle…

Like frayed wires.

I wish I could mind meld,

like a vulcan…

Save her the trouble of discovery…

But that is the crux of the adventure,

for life is the struggle towards expression

And away from the wordless scream…

Of silence.
