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 gush out of reach from the sleeves of a night like a conversation behind closed knobs… I hear yet can't quite grasp what my heart wants to say in low dips ; like a tremolo carrying mould of twilight... it hums all sermons of a Sunday church bell speaking in tongues I knew once...long ago. The moon folds around me in black suds washing a laundry of venting desire, only to find myself trapped by needles…I feel a stab, a grating chill: perhaps, I have no language when no one wants to listen.

Well dear lady, I am proud to say I have commented on this haunting gem before and it's even better the second time around...I LOVE seeing this part of your soul. Oh, by the way, you DO have language now because I am listening and so are many others and oh what language it is! Congratulations - Tim
