Title: WORDS

Author: Michmak

Summary: A little poem. Sara is thinking about Grissom, and how he has withdrawn from her. Takes place after Scuba Doobie-Do (think chalk) and before Burden of Proof (think plant). Sara thinks she has pushed to fast, and scared Grissom away permanently.

I heard once that words can fly -

like birds -

through the windows of the soul.

You words flew once -

straight to my heart

and rested on my future.

I thought I had captured something

elusive and rare -

and so I tried to chain them.

But the harder I tried, the less they flew.

Eventually they just died -

crushed by the weight of my love.

I wish your words would fly again,

and you could forgive me for killing

the first

tentative flutterings

of your heart.
