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
fascination
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.

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)
