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.

The sound of a heart beat, the taste of love, golden lines the threads that tie and guide to the reality of our dreams. Maybe written out of insanity o some other fault in your mind at the time but an excellent product.

That was really something, how you just turned back the hands of time. I loved the way your walking turned into time travel. It felt as if I was one of the spirits who were sifted through your mind. I love riding the waves of your imagery.

A poem that just sets you adrift, and lets you ride the waves of your imagination. It's like a dream.
