Ode to WhispersSpeak my name to me.Ode to Whispers7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Softly, like your hand upon my cheek.
Flicker in the candlelight
unreal and barely tangible.
Awaken my mind,
shut my eyes
with the falling of each letter,
With the smoothness of each sound.
Make my heart pound.
I am delicately bound,
with wooden staples and
so be careful with me.
