SIREN OF SILENCE

SIREN OF SILENCE

Shhhhhhhhhh
I shushed because I was shushed
Words swallowed
Lips mapped by the wind
Voice shadows,
Loudness of no sound
Persistence of a withdrawn culture
I can only hear with my eyes, am an amateur

The voice box waved
The tongue could not retort
shhhhhhhh, the thoughts will be saved
the heart race becomes a sport
Soundless, intricate disease
It is the speech of the eyes
left to reincarnate meaning
Your tongue is cunning

Tick tock tick tock
veins on the verge of explosion
The long wait of your say, around the clock
shhhh…speak without speaking
Nature abhors a vocal vacuum
Am waiting and waiting
Enough! quiet is the highest volume
Footsteps to an empty room

DO YOU EVER?

DO YOU EVER?

Flashbacks
Do they sting you?
Rendesvous of eyes
Do you get electrified?
Do you ever spot me in your thoughts?

Kisses on the forehead
Memories, fresh
Do you drown in reminiscence?
Your sweet smelling fragrance
Do you ever spot me in your thoughts?

Your eyes on mine
I see a twitch
Mutual desire
Hands are tied
Do you ever spot me in your thoughts?

Emotions unveiled
Distinct sound of your heart beating
Regrets, loneliness
In the presence of the birds
Swear that you are glad
Do you ever spot me in your thoughts?

Different turns we took
Together on the highway we meet
What is that look?
Speak with your eyes
Do you ever spot me in your thoughts?

Does her touch possess your skin?
Thirst for a smile
Tears honor stolen moments
Lives with different style
But do you ever spot me in your thoughts?
