Subject: Love


Time she's quelled a fear in me,
Of tarnished words and sounding twee,
My life contrives a pungent shove,
Through doors towards this talk of love,
Whilst ripples in these baked surrounds,
Breathe candle flits about the grounds,
Scared to set the caged one free,
This prisoner in the quick of me,
He lent a fiend to fights unfought,
And bought it back with idle thoughts,
And gifts of ice in recompense,
These spices in your sweet incense,
Here boils a mood to touch my tongue,
Which settles there to sleep too long,
And leaves you mustering replies,
To words which swell within my eyes,
Between the lines you read my fall,
And, though unsaid, I mean them all,
Those words you squeezed through filial fear,
To whisper at my sleeping ear,
Well since then they're no longer yours,
I stole them since I need them more,
I'll hand them back without a sound,
Exhaled warmth and ribbon bound,
With every look you heat the floor,
With burning soles I fidget more,
And burnished souls confused and dazed,
Can speak of love with volume raised,
But mine is quiet potency,
And all the while you float with me,
Smiling back through all I've seen,
And whiling on the time between,
The decibels of gargled jewels,
Around the mouths of doting fools,
They prove mere stone when passed the way,
Of things I feel yet cannot say,
A patient jolt which left me sore,
And shipwreck slung upon your shore,
A legacy of fitful health,
And every word but sunken wealth.
