RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Showing Quiet Desperation
Quiet desperation showing through
a melody being sung in a karaoke cafe.
No one knowing the silence of his life
outside the harmony of his voice.
Retreating from love, yet not a soul
has noticed what is going on right in
front of their eyes.
An event of quiet desperation never
being noticed, as tears fall silently
within his voice.
