More than your name

25 May

 

I whispered more

than your name

last night

before finally

I slept.

 

I whispered more

than your name

last night,

bravely

into the dark,

like a poem

like a prayer.

 

I whispered more

than your name

last night,

hoping the soft

seeking syllables,

the wishing

wanting words

would somehow

reach you

and touch you

deep.

 

I whispered more

than your name

last night.

 

Perhaps

you didn’t hear.

    So wonderfully lyrical, it played like a song in my mind.
    The flow and imagery are just stunning.
    It’s floats like a beautiful ballerina across an open stage.

    The whispered words, the name softly spoken in shadow and dark, fell not upon deaf ears. The silken call stirs me from my slumber, draws me forward, entranced. I am Darkness, I am Night, the Shadows my refuge, where I am shrouded from sight. But whisper my name into that velvet gloom and I shall hear. Awaken me from my little death.
