Silence

Silence

A Poem by Salem Fitzgerald
"

David, as always.

"

I fell in love with your quiet,

I fell in love with the possibility of your unspoken thoughts.

I fell in love with the speed of your movements but

mostly I fell in love with your quiet.

 

Every unexpressed word and suppressed feeling you had

Came through in your touch

And I felt it hot on my skin.

You didn’t just touch me with your hands but with your words…

With your quiet.

 

And I listened and watched and felt and tasted your thoughts

On my lips and you spoke to me in sighs and strokes.

You barely spoke a word, but I heard you.

I'm not a poet so I can't comment on the structure

However, I loved the sentiment and the imagery you have created

This is brilliantly romantic poetry, your overlook on love is simply mind blowing. What can I write you more as your a soul who can read eyes and lips:)

Every unexpressed word and suppressed feeling you had
Came through in your touch

I could very much imagine someone this magical. Very nice work! :)

I love the way you did this. I like the fact that you used the word quiet instead of silence. Favorite line: I fell in love with the possibility of your unspoken thoughts.

Great work.
