When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

Silent voice

Whispering thoughts

What?

Ethereal words and abstract meanings
                        familiar sounds
           Is it?
ephemeral foam disturbing my ears

Where?

Behind my eyes
between my front teeth
             Is  my  voice?
inside that old chrysalid

No!

I  miss
        words
those
     galloping verses inside my head
the colours and the oxymorons
that beautiful incongruent image
the cruel kindness of the elusive symbol
     of the evasive meaning
    of the slippery sound

Today, Guy Reiser Cannon challenged us to write in our own, comfortable voice and style at dVerse. It was not an easy task. Today my voice was a fugitive!

A black bird

               Touch

Memory
    Completeness

                               Heat

A black bird covers the day
with butterfly wings
  in a hug surrounding the sky

               Touch

It’s space between two bodies
when the distance disappears

                               Heat

Finding colors in the absence
Feeling contact in a sign

    Completeness

The wings open the exit of dreams
Nobody wants to return

I let you go

I thought you were about to leave
      I was wrong

I cried
A bit too much
Perhaps too little

I cried      for three years
Until that day
when you didn’t buy the rose
when we knew it was too late

A mistake at once
a milestone at sight

I let you go
I let me go
