this silence that speaks
tangible, like a chord between us
it wraps around us in thick, dark coils
stretching and turning
drawing us closer
and then, releasing us
into each other’s eyes.
these unsaid words that pour
make poetry of our reverberating being
from my tongue to yours
into a kiss that makes us tremble more
and holds us captive in our imagination
as we grow drunk on dawn verses.
