Listen to Ivy read Undying


kiss my unsung

your lips know its melody

ancient is its unhurried time signature

unworried, it shall tumble onto

your seeking tongue

while you

stroke my unseen

your touch knows its curve

prudent is its age-worn path toward eventide

unwound, it shall guide

your bleeding wrist

for it

wants my unloved

your heart knows its sorrow

fleeting is its moment on eager parchment


unleashed, it shall declare wishes

for those who yearn to perceive

your unsung, contemplate

your unseen, embrace

your unloved

through words undying

we breathe
