Silences

 

In the beginning

we were satisfied with writing.

Then we felt the need

to talk.

Now you talk of

“silences” –

and I love the word and thought…

 

It makes me shiver

in a delightful, sensuous and passionate way,

and I think of what you called

“communication going on via body-language,

the subtle look on the eye,

the window to the soul”.

I’m recalling your sentence

“surely there will be other things

we will be able to share

intense feelings

about”

 

I enjoy these words,

there is nothing to add –

they leave me in silence.
