silence

SILENCE LIKE WINE

it is not okay
to spill silence like wine
into my emptied heart
for it is already filling with emotion
and the hungry spaces in between
are not for getting drunk

SILENCE

Silence

And I am left speechless enough to know that words cannot fill a void like silence.

KEYBOARD ASSASSIN

I have, once more,
jailed my vision,
splicing diamond-cut thoughts with this
cross-bred and violently bleeding doubt that
feeds from the stomach and shreds the sanest of minds

It is here this rampant indecision
squawks in wordless tongue,
lashing its disposable fancies
(arrow-tipped precision)
at my shaking core,
bowels emptying
alongside any creative thoughts of semblance

All that is left to bear witness: a sweaty palm or two
– and silence –
as the webbing of my fingers um and ah
hovering, like midnight fireflies
over the speech-impeded womb
of my QWERTY keys

And, inside, I hear laughter

THE MOUTH OF SILENCE

The Mouth of Silence

Fluid
the mouth of silence
while the drowning poet
writes to starve the
mind of words

WATER INTO WINE

 

These words,
bedded by the flow of interpretation
dance;
a transhuman storm of sound
– rivulets of fancy and frolics –
washing clean the silence
with a bird call
of hidden meaning.

TO HAUNT

 

These long silences
used to haunt me –
now every ghost
of every memory
comforts me wisely
instead.

VOCAL

 

I can be silent
but vocal
if you only had eyes
to listen.

SILENT WORDS

Silent Words

Every word you don’t speak
is simply one more
that I would happily wait a lifetime
in silence
to hear
