When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

A kiss in the dark


We meet again                    –chance
     Two flights     one destination
     One week     two agendas
     Dinner at seven     tomorrow

Attraction                             –cloaked
     A kiss in the dark
     Words that disappear at the touch of our hands
     Caution consigned to oblivion

Daylight detachment          –confusion
     Complicity in a subtle smile
     Desire dispersed in pragmatism
     A just-friends agreement

Concert at the palace         –chaos
     Conscious dismissal of boundaries
     Distance dissolved in rapture
     A storm

We embraced each other    –silent farewell
     Two flights     two destinations
     Freedom     no path
     A choice

  1. I enjoy your poetry, it mirrors life!

  2. A lot of colliding emotions here–I especially like the contrast between the night time kiss and the daytime detachment. We’ve all been there, as in: thinking all day about what happened the night before REALLY meant! Nicely done.

  3. So sad to not be able to love openly. One has to wonder about what is not said.

  4. i like the turn from two fights, one destination, to two. Sadly some journeys are not meant to be shared together.

  5. So much happening underneath – and so hard to stay in that tension. Love the abrevated form… Sometimes a story is stronger by saying less.

  6. Whistles!! Oh Adriana this is absolutely to die for 😀

    Lots of love,

  7. Excellent story poem. I so enjoy the contrast between day and night and the emotions.
