soul burn


soul burn

so close
fingertips barely touching
eyes fill the silence
so loud
tongue-less suspicions
of knowing
and receiving
but only in pieces
like bread crumbs
breathes quietly
letting aches linger
suspenseful intuition
bordering a dance
that speaks
a language for two
veiled in red
slightly seductive
for a purpose served
in closing gaps
until standing nearer
but only a kiss apart

Souls on fire, wordless communication accepted and understood. *Fascination breathes quietly letting aches linger* Great lines, great write.

That is a pretty good poem, it is from deep within,by the words you wrote.

"but only a kiss apart" — this line is so perfectly poetic. I like the subtle seductiveness of this piece.

Rottiestyl commented on soul burn


This was well written but every verse left me waiting for the punch out. This has great potential as being a ground warrior! Very well put together. It makes you tittering there on the wall, not knowing if it's safe or enviably a danger well. I quite like it!

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
