whisper




















how you lay your cheek against mine in the dark,
slid a soft hand behind my neck,
bent so close to my ear, I could feel how deeply
you were breathing.

you said nothing,
not even a whisper,

but I knew exactly
what you meant.

I wonder if poets such as you dream in poetry. Are your dialogues peppered this way as you dream?

Absolutely beautiful! I've been to that very place you speak of. Time has passed but the moment will forever be with me.
