I am ~ unraveling

I am ~ unraveling

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental... probably...

"
​I wonder about​ the music, the sound of your soul - deep voice which fills me in
 
I wonder about the silence, more profound than your soft, nuzzling whispers which brush past

I wonder about the electrifying stares, fiery glances and the meaning they carry right over to me 

I wonder about the embrace which used to envelope me and now seems lost;


wandering alone --- I am ~ unraveling.

Yumna Hi. I like the lyricism and flow in this. And I really like the way the final line almost sums up the others and reaches the conclusion that matches the title.

I do, however, question the core word 'wonder'. To me this word has always been imagination of what-ifs, exciting possibilities, etc. You seem to be using it to reflect back. So for me, this is dissonant. Just me being too literal again ....!

Agree with Nigel Newman about the lyricism and flow. I would, however, keep "wonder" except for the last line, then use "wander" to emphasize the journey of unraveling.
Nicely done.

That is indeed a nice suggestion. Thank you for that and for appreciating, CC :)
How the sounds and silences come and speak into our souls so deeply from those we love. Yet, this unraveling feels so painfully cold, threads of your life being pulled apart. In the wondering may you find a peace, somehow, dear poet.

You nailed the point of the writing malarkey here Yumna. You connect so well here.
The overt wistfulness is tempered by the emotion beautifully.
Superb!
