A Poem by M.A.


Are they flat and lifeless?

Do they mean anything anymore?

Must we rely on actions?

Show me how much you love me!

Show me how much you care!


They scream until their throats bleed.

While I lie silent,

And unmoving.

I want whispers of sweet nothings,

Molding themselves to caress my neck.

Silent proclamations.

Raw and untamed words.

That’s all I want.

I am visiting your early writing. I hope that is ok, (it is fun to see the kinds of beginnings people had. Anyway, This poem was very refreshing in it's honesty and up front explanation of what the heart really wants. I can understand that kind of expression. sometimes we would waste less time and energy in simply communicating our true feelings. Very nice poem..............Blessings to you. Kathy

My first read of your work....
You have made your point quite clearly though in a subtle manner. You have smartly brought the commonly held view in the beginning and dismissed it in the end giving your stand on it..
Smartly crafted beautiful write..sometimes words mean a lot. Words are also needed...
Thanks for sharing this beautiful write......

There is so much truth in what you have managed to say in such a short, but wonderfully complete piece. The thought of what is spoken against the wish of what they would be are like opposing points of the compass, as the needle turns, expectations rise, until you notice that the other end always moves away from its opposite too. The differences make the silent and unmoving part of your piece all the more charged and potent. Overall, your piece gives an answer to the third line...Yes, words still mean something. Superb.

Wow. So much emotion and meaning in such a small statement.
This is wonderful. Words can do so much, and I often find myself thinking the same things you written here. It's very thought provoking and I feel like I'm reading my own thoughts when I look at this.
You did a great job on this.

well said... in short words.
it's really must to bring down thoughts into things, & put words into ACTIONS 'cos in love, as long as u don't arrange some actions, the trail of ur bewildering words is quite worthless, & epidemic to hearts' as well. so it's must to move words into actions... just to speak heart. very nicely written!
