Speak - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

your accent is like, cherry-caramel to my ears
my favourite flavour, and it kills
me when you stop talking, to ask if I am
listening; I hear your tones more than your
words, my dear
keep talking

    una breve poesia, ma intensa nelle emozioni che suscita. Grazie!
    a short lyric, but poetically intense. *LIKE* is an obvious choice :)

    It is wonderful when a voice can soothe us....like a whisper of the heart. Beautiful and made me miss certain voices I haven't heard for some time. PEACE (Report) Reply
