Whispers

Poem: Whispers

***

sweet words kiss my breast

cadences catch my breath

whispers only I know

swelling my heart

.

anticipated whispers only I feel

dragonfly wishes beat inside

flutters catch my breath

filling my heart

.

adored whispers only I love

sensual intoxication reveals me

reciprocations catch my breath

floating my heart

.

trusted

whispers

gorgeous

whispers

wanted

whispers

.

no

.

trickery of trust

bleed upon beautiful blades

waiting for nevermore

smiles catch my breath

felling my heart

.

disappointed whispers

only I know love made to vanity

pretty promises breathed through false teeth

hurts catch my breath

felling my heart

.

guarded whispers

only I see sweet lies walking other ways

cadences steal my breath

felling my heart

.

betrayed whispers

only I know expectations ground to sand on which I stand

sinking my heart

sinking my all into dark

until true love hears

until true love sees

until true love feels

broken

whispers

tiny

whispers

my

whispers

and holds out a steady hand for me to grasp

***

As always, thank you for stopping by and spending time with my words.

Be well. Be happy. Be you. -Ivy

  1. Oh, Ivy. This is one long steady chill. Beautiful composition and rhythm. I read in a whisper and can feel the words still dancing about me now.

    I swear time stops entirely when I read you. Every single beautiful offering is unique. And I love the journey this takes the reader on. Light through darkness is how we best proceed. This encapsulates that handsomely. Uttermost perfection.

    1. Yes, Richard. You see it. *hugs* Whether we perceive dark feelings or light feelings depends on where we focus our thoughts. Sometimes, when all we feel is dark, we must reach out to the ones who give us light. Light is all around us. Light loves us. And many times, what we perceive to be dark isn’t dark at all. Many times, it’s our perception (and all our personal history that feeds perception) that derails us. Thank you, Richard, for your beautiful comment and your fierce belief in me.
