Your name

23 Oct


I spoke your name today.

I tried it in my mouth. I rolled the syllables over my tongue. I tested you upon my lips. I listened to the sound you made.

I imagined whispering softly. Quiet, eloquent poetry. Words of adoration. A gentle instruction. A firm command

I spoke your name today

You tasted like heaven in my mouth

I recited you.

Over and over.

    i’ve never let myself really listen to the spoken word, this time i let myself lean back with closed eyes and i really listened…the words themselves are beautiful, words any woman yearns to hear, incredible perfection (You outdo yourself each time You write), thank You for sharing these words so we can really hear them the way they’re meant to be heard, and in a way that echoes through the mind, playing over and over…gorgeous…

      I am glad you enjoyed them. I am imagining you with your head back and eyes closed …

        there’s something about the eyes closed that makes the sound that much better. ..

    Such lyrical beauty punctuated in such purposeful articulation. You inspire me to write poetry that makes the strongest impression when it’s whispered.

    I’ve recorded the name of my lover and listened to it on repeat. It sounded like a mantra, prayer, promise, and home….

    There was once a name I would repeat – I would trace it over and over again with my tongue waiting for the day I would be on my knees before him waiting for his word to free me…

    You have a lovely voice – thank you for sharing it.

      Thank you for reading and listening. It is appreciated
      I hope he did not leave you on your knees alone

        We are always alone when we are on our knees – whether in worship or in contemplation…we are in a different place inside ourselves.

        Be well,

    I love your work. You are a kindred spirit in these subjects. May I ask how you link to the Soundcloud player? I thought this could only be done on a self hosted site.

    I’ve resisted listening to your audio offerings until today. Perhaps because the intimacy of your words was always enough. Perhaps because I just dipped into the Souncloud possibilities today… Your voice adds a dimension to the reading that wasn’t anticipated. It is a most welcome facet to this piece. ~ k

    Still in bed with eyes closed… just listening… like a caress to my ear… it feels so good to wake up to your voice.. and then I heard you whisper “Ember…” over and over…. 😉
