VOICE IN HIDING



Hiding here inside my closet, I feel safe in the dark knowing on a pile of sheets lies my very psyche; it's only a thought, yet I am unhurt among drawers… so I curl and stare blank, imbibing bits of gentle murmurings that whisper on hangers as they sway with the lint...I strain to listen but prickly voices rush out of reach from the sleeves of a night like a conversation behind closed doors… I hear yet can't quite grasp what my heart wants to say in low dips ; like a tremolo carrying mould of twilight... it chants all sermons of a Sunday church bell speaking in tongues I knew once...long ago. The moon slices the folds around me in black suds washing a laundry of venting desire, only to find myself trapped in pins…I feel a stab, a grating chill: perhaps, I have no language when no one wants to listen.

    Very interesting and all wrapped up in the last line. Congratulations Nette. Love, Joyce

    The last line rattled the meaning of the poem into me. It's a true poem in my biased book, and likely minority opinion.

    This one is very deep. Where do our words go when there is no one to hear them?

  1. Date: 1/31/2014 4:27:00 AM

    Nette, this has a wonderful calm feel to it and i feel a search for a muse.Time will tell. I know that feeling. Itoo have no language when no one wants to listen.
