956: Silence In Love. - Poem by Catastrophe KING

I yearn for an expression of your love for me, but quiet are your lips.
Your lips blush readily with the essence of rubies.
They breathe life, they tremble and quiver,
Yet they are silent - with the words I want to hear.

Have they nothing to say? They have, I know.
Love governs them, but in silence!
And I wouldn’t have them any other way
Because, now I feel there is no need to say.

You love me but your feelings you suppress
What your heart feels your lips cannot express
It’s true, words often cannot reveal the true magic of love's potion
for words don’t match the deep density of emotion

My heart tells me your heart needs me and you are happy, without lament,
for it is not a bondage but a devoted bond that cements.
Your smile shows the love in your soul and my soul glows
I am content, I need no words from you anymore of your consuming love for me.

    Dear poet, it is the epitome of expression when one cannot express what one feels. When the feeling is at the superlative degrees, words are a waste or ill expressed. Beautiful lines. But y catastrope king? (Report) Reply

    Silence can express the emotions that words can't.
