Archive for the tag “whisper”

room by room


I walk down the steps into an open
foyer with the lights on

the morning sun sprays itself into the
house from everywhere

I walk across the wooden floor
sabotaged by kitty toys
and broken promises

I open the refrigerator door
for more artificial light
and orange juice concentrate

things are starting to come back to me now
I say to myself

audibly clearer than a whisper
I wonder out loud
what lies in the next room

Careless Whisper


I waited all day to reach out
for your hand
and you accepted
after already dancing
so many songs
in your pretty white dress

Reminiscing on the dance floor
we waltzed effortlessly
to a familiar ballad
our feet light
our eyes lost
as if looking through a mirror
