Braille Screams

                                               Within the days,
                                                   eyes of ilex
                                                  lulling to the
                                                 snowy grass.
                                            Hearts and echoes
                                                  beating past.
                                         To want them would be
                                                   vox and vex;
                                             My love is silence
                                                    at its best.
                                          Speak while I am still
                                                   a living verb
                                             and not the words
                                                upon my grave.
                                             Consume me like
                                               the ocean waves,
                                        before I am nothing more
                                                  than literature.

    An excellent poem. The ilex is evergreen. The grass is not. To want the days that pass with our evergreen eyes is folly. To love silently but to love is better than to say the words and hope. So speak love while it lives within. Bespeak it and consume it as waves consume the beach. Yes! It's not only literature.

    Awesome write here, Alyssa. Love the ending and I'm not sure I understand the title but I think if I read this a couple more time I will ... smile ... been awhile since you've been writing here at the Soup but I thank you for your comments and hope you return soon!!
