The Waves Whispered What You Are

By Bella Butchery

In this sea of sand
We haunt the same place
Waves swallowed
And sunk us down
Your limbs fastened
A weight to my ankle

I fought it at first
But your song
Passivity pulled me in

Matted hair
My eyes dialate
drunk with
the warmth of your smile

Nothing will stop you now

Never meant to happen this way

But your face

So soft
A broken mirror
Shines melody
Reflects to breathe shards

Your sound stole a breath
Your taste faked a kiss

I saw your make
And the more I screamed
The harder you came

    to tell the truth, sometimes. i write in pieces, then fit where appropriate, sometimes it takes me a long time to think of an ending.... most people only consider an opening and closing to the most potent part of a poem, so i try and utalize that fact :D

    to be so enthralled by someone but knowing that its not what you want...this is powerful great write

  • A former member wrote: "Your taste faked a kiss" Ah, but to be lulled into the idea that despite the truth staring you in the face, there might be something lurking deep beneath the mask...I agree with what Lynaes said...Excellent write. ~*Beth*~

    Trapped in a reverie of someone's magnetic pull.. You know it's pit of sinking sand, but the aroma is too alluring to resist.. Desire can sometimes take you to a bad place..

    Haunting in way is this piece.. but equally striking. Powerful work, I had to this read this more than once. Awesome.
