A Naked Language Poem by Romeo Della Valle

A Naked Language

Rating: 5.0

The heart is deceived by a muted tongue
That is bound by captivity...
A feeble voice- Uncertain wrong
Is divested of word's gravity...

Let my silence be stripped of a story,
A naked language barely heard,
Below the surface a deeper need
Damns the mind which bridges no word...

I told of nothing at all when I called,
So imprisoned was I by fear
That if I saw an open door
I would not trust it not to disappear...

The walls around have been tightly closing,
Pressing out the air from my lungs
Trapping myself within a building
Slowly vanishing from the horizon...

An amazing naked language is barely heard from heart's beat. A muted tongue observes the captivity. Slowly vanishing from the horizon pressed air gives here breath. This is really very interesting sharing. An amazing poem this is. Congratulations! ..10

The silence and solitude illustrated with a balanced way to imagine the language of subconscious. Nice catch. Thanks.
