A Poem by elle_morell

Passion as a candle burns,
and I am like the room
Where fire flirts with whispers…
A waltz to absent tune.

Though masquerading silence
Would willingly adjourn,
If they knew the lyrics
To thought’s relentless turn.

A contemplative and somewhat wistful kind of poem. I am often introspective, so I can certainly relate to this write. Some good, poetic imagery here.

love the imagery here, yes on the "knew"....
but the last two lines of the first stanza dazzle...
and I like the idea of the silence adjourning so that the music that is wihin, might just emerge.

Hi there,
Really enjoyed your little poem and very first read of yours..
Not sure if I should mention this but it seems that you forgot the K in new..
If they knew the lyrics...
but it needs a spell heck correction//
great line,
Lisa now in Spain
