No one to tell

Searing love does not fade 
It simply lies in wait in hollow partitions 
Prone to sudden gusts  
of breathlessness 
These come in waves 
Some driving brusque prickles  
Others curling unhinged senses 
into further disorder 
Yet others stirring a cruel blend of  
and reason 

The waves prompt a light-headed 
About confidence in a fractured shell 
About love with no one to tell 

They commit to change 
But winds carry a familiar scent 
Songs are about us 
And she’s in every silhouette  

The scent and songs 
swirl around the hollow partition like dreams  
Walls are tested 
to the point of rapture 
And still,
there is no one to tell 

Memories merge with the scent and songs  
Crafting a cogent immunity to time 
Our past is fused 
Changing seasons bear credence 
to the tenet of hope 
But tomorrow hangs on meanings 
crammed into last words  
Laughter ceases 
And searing love seeks deliverance… 
there is no one to tell
