WHISPER #285

by Karl Chamberlain

Whisper

Press against me; breathe

Your heartbeat; feel

Emotion caught in voice; hear

Your whisper in my ear

 

Hand tangles hair

Caressing some secret part

Of my soul; a whisper

Leads love into

Oblivion dying

Bliss

 

Whisper so quiet

The dew falls loud

Like thunder roars

My veins, my loins

Echo your desire

 

Whisper so softly

My soul must strain

To catch the words as

They soar into heaven

Screaming softness

Braving the dark

Only a lilí death

 

Oblivion

Explodes into light

Just

 

Whisper
