For a time, I embraced the
(The sounds & vibrations created
between our tongues & teeth by
flesh within flesh & nights
barely dreaming so often falling
awake to resonance of thoughts)
For a moment, I saw myself as
brave: to be so casually vulnerable,
I put away the barriers –
& so noise rushed in, provided entry,
reverberating in the hollow spaces.
After time, I asked but more often
begged: rearrange these sounds,
create a language we can share.
When I named our frequency, it was
with knowing your response:
For me, it was only meant as fun.
Some love can live only left undefined.
Given words, it loses shape –
& I call it love changes to
another sound for pain.
