Words Unspoken

by Joanna

Every time I try 

The words stop short in my chest

Fingers unable to select 

The feeling that bursts

Each moment that you flash

Into my sphere

Love shattered 

Still contained

Within the items

Along the shelves

Of the thrift store

A book

A decorative plate

A figurine

They call to me 

In remembrance

Of the exquisite moments

Aloft in the cockpit

Traveling through the stars

Set on a course for home
