Leave a Whisper
One thing I must know before we go any further than this
Words that must be sealed with a true kiss..
That when you leave and leave you must..
sorry-This is turning to more than lust:
I ask you to leave a whisper in my ear
An ending to this chapter,No sequel I fear.
You didn't know I was awake when you slipped away
I'm sorry you must leave
''don't go''''please stay''
No words of this nature may I say.
''Nor bring me any sense of senseless self''
They get to close and with this I can not permit
Memories of the faded face lingering
Thoughts I can not forget.....
I could feel her breath upon my neck as she left me a memory;
One that is fading tonight
This- just one reason that I must write.
Should have I pushed,pulled,fought for what I believed to be mine
or continue to 'sleep' pretending tomorrow would be just f.i.n.e.
This time wasn't like the others
that voice could be my muse's muse
I kept my silence silent,something I've begun to abuse.
- If you feel your soul screaming at you with advice
Do not hesitate,prolong,ponder-Never think twice-
For in that time,your moment may have left,just dew,mist,simply gone
Grasping for something tangible''hoping ear shall prolong''
Just leave a whisper so memories I will have to nourish a smile,it too needs help
to be seen every once in awhile.
Memory I do have,not of sight but sound.A beautiful whisper,
A reminder to make life a little more profound.
