Left Unsaid

No closer to the state of grace
one assumed marked passage
from a bedevilled locality – no
flash of revelation too brilliant
to stare in the face; it is all so
ho-hum abuzz, so ordinary we
see nothing to gaze at except
our own disparate reflections 

But they pale into drab & grey
too far gone to stand out from
the rest; it is true as they say
we grow alike, merge without
features for the right reasons
into words better left unsaid
