A Poem by Constance-Outspoken

Greater evidences of heart
never pass from one's lips
as humble utterances
for touch is truer speech

Within hand's tremble
or the lilting vibration
of timid breath upon flesh
all is finally laid bare

 I aspire to feel this truth
once within your embrace
for the eyes may deceive
as ears can't be believed

Greater evidences of heart

That was a beautiful first stanza. Though the whole poem was great. Well done Constance:)

I thought this was absolutely moving and powerful

Such an amazing piece

I honestly do not know how to describe this piece

All I know is that your hand had a powerful force behind it

that echoed through my spirit..

Well done Constance !!!

Loved it..

Enjoyed your ruminations on the authenticity of touch.

"the lilting vibration
of timid breath upon flesh"

was a gorgeous turn of phrase.

Talk is cheap if actions don't back it up. A beautifully melancholy piece of writing.

The tone sounds familiar. What have you been reading lately? Shakespeare or Keats? I like it!! It's like a refashioning of sorts. This would be beautifully done as a spoken piece as well. As always, my talented acquaintance, keep sharing!
