Wordless

Laying half naked on his stomach
Surrounded with crumpled paper balls
rotates pen on two fingers
Half legs raised in air
Swinging toes occasionally kiss each other
Twenty two months passed
when their eyes had sex –
“Sultry and Wet”
for the last time.
Rear of pen is chewed and leaking
tiny water-balls gripped eyelids, peeping
blank paper lifts its corners as air blows
as if it wants to go out to play.

Wordless – It was then.
Wordless – It is now.
Wordless – It will remain.

    Whoa! Powerful ending, but true to life sometimes. Your blog is beautiful!

  4. Why did it just stir some numb feelings in me?

  5. Very emotional and I agree with other commenters that it most certanly wakes up some feelings and memories I sometimes prefer would stay wordless.

  6. “Twenty two months passed
    when their eyes had sex”

    “Wordless – It was then.
    Wordless – It is now.
    Wordless – It will remain.”

    Awesome. Beautiful. Moving. One of my favorites from you.
