Won't You Say My Name

Won't You Say My Name

A Poem by Michael W. Farrelly

We'll move together on with the rythm of your choosing,
but won' you say my name?

We'll dance across any floor of your preeference,
waltz and tango through the past,
avoid asphyxiation as breathe in each-other
but wont you say my name?

I can charm the snakes thorughout the garden,
remove the bitterness of any fruit,
remove the need for hiding;
but please, just once
won't you say my name.

i love everything about this piece; from it's beautiful word choice, to the rhythm of the poem itself. It's like every word gently hangs on the other; captivating. Good work! :)
