Caged Silence

Caged Silence

A whispered voice
on a gentle breeze
hushed by the ripple
of rustling leaves,
goes unheard.

The silent spinning
of a mournful tale
inked on a page
soon grows pale,
goes unread.

Desires of hearts
straining the seams
stay tucked away
to cavort in dreams,
go unspoken.

    A shared romance of silent vision. Two souls slow dance inside a prison. Beyond the light that grows the heart. A tale untold keeps them apart. Love your poem Debra. I like these types of poems by you. Your really hitting the nail on the head. Be strong my friend. :)
