The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...


A gentle whisper in your hands,
Sh... Time lingers; still and hushed,
Just...quiet.
Thoughts appear in the silence,
Begging, begging...
Another breath,
Barely heard above it all...
A stolen glance,
So many words...
Tempted to run....
Away!
Away!
But will they reach their destination?
No.
They remain only here,
Inside this agonized, spinning mind,
So sick with confusion; so ill by a fantasy...
Over and over,
It burns in my chest...
What are we?
What are we?

Or do we even know ourselves?

Silenced by a soft indulgence,
Tender and fleeting...
And again,
Again...
Amazement.
Longing.
Wholeness.

Are we still captured by the fear of revealing?

Night deepens and conceals the questions,
So many,
Oh, so many...
Unanswered.
But will they stay?

Still so quiet,
They dare to gaze...
In wonder,
Awe.
Our oceans meet...
So similar,
Familiar,
Beautiful.

Softly shining against the glow of moonlight...
Waiting.

A melody drifts,
So close...
Gentle,
So...
Caring.

Subtle sweetness brushes my lips,
Stained with violet,
I faintly hear the song once more...
Wanting to never forget,
To cherish every word...

Holding on...
Breathing in...
Letting go...

I open the door,
Hoping I've somehow now unlocked your heart.

This is... Very intimate... That's the only way I know to describe it.... I'd love to hear your interpretations of it. As well as my other work(;

I absolutley love it. I can feel the emotion, and the style and way it is written is very captivating.  I would say to becareful not to drag it out too long though, and watch the consistency with the stanzas. other then that, it is fantastic!!

Love this. It feels on edge and I can hear it being read to me in my head (if that makes sense). My only comment would be to watch consistency with stanzas :)

"or do we even know ourselves?" very thought provoking question, very deep and flows well. like a river that is more than what it seems on its surface

Again, the content was great. This time, the style actually played into your hands REALLY well. I give this one a five star (which is rare for me, so good job!) Oh, and Tapper is translating for me. I can still see the chat, I just can't post for a little while. If you want to talk to me directly, go to piratepad.n et and open a new chat. Then post the link in TI chat, then I will follow you :)
