A Sound I Could Drink

A Sound I Could Drink

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

My heart pretended you were a sound I could drink...............

"

















My heart pretended
you were a sound
I could drink
when I went searching
for golden lines full of surprise.
When I walked towards you,
my ears tasted the beat of the earth
and it began to turn
in reverse.

Ringing clear were hundreds of memories
I had kissed freely,
known as all the things you did.
Then in came the rushing sea
crashing into my mind
with waves of everything
you have ever said.

Therefore, I waited by a tree
that had shown its shadow
as being all that I could ever need.
However,
when I looked inside myself,
I found my heart
cold and bare.

A sight I have now become
but there is one thing I surely know.
I could never push aside
the sound of you I drink
from all these golden lines.
My ears will walk
towards you and taste
this beat
until I make you mine.

Neva,

My name is Ateldoora D. Nightmoon-Barnum and I am the Co-Director of an internationally distributed Fine Arts magazine. My staff has spent a good deal of time searching for a way to contact you and have found nothing. I would like to speak with you about possibly publishing your poem " A sound I could drink" with our magazine. Please reach me at [email protected] I look forward to hearing from you.

Wow. Incredible description of feeling empty without the one who seems to fill. I can imagine we've all felt this way some time or other, but as usual you've put it in such clear and beautiful moving terms.

Outrageously good. I am enjoying reading it a third time. So out of sync with reality, yet so vividly real in the imagination of your mind. It is nice to be a voyeur inside of someone else's mind.
