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.

A swell of emotions straight off the page and into my brain. Washed over by thoughts and ideas that just leave me insatiable. Words can't sum it up

Amazing photo and words.
"However,
when I looked inside myself,
I found my heart

The desire and emotion make the poem a powerful poem.
A excellent poem.

I really enjoy reading your work, yes I know I am behind. But am slowly but surely getting caught up. And I am so glad I stopped in tonight to read before turning in. Your words always seem to tug at my heart. Such a heartfelt piece.
Just simply beautiful and amazing work
