She Only Loves In Stereo - Poem by Joyce Elie

Really? That's fine-because I've been there.
I've been known to puncture quiet in iove spells
And maximize volume in verse

Crooning my chorus in the most intimate positions
I've cultivated and creamed in candor.
And so I've been been there.

But have you forgotten
The music I've made in mute?
The looks in longing transversing lyrics

And the hooks I've hummed so delicately
Only to you...only to you?
Did you misplace the passion

The explosions in Bass followed by
My trembling in treble lowered
So that I could hum my hooks

Only to you...only to you?
I made sure to repeat the bridge
So that you could lull me to sleep

And watch you walk away murmuring my song...
Our melodies were so in tune.
But did you forget?

How I felt for you in long verse?
I wanted to be your theme.
And so I rewrote the song and

Remixed that it could fit your rhythm
But did you forget?
My songs of love were never in stereo,

Because I blessed you in BOSE.
And that's fine.
But did you forget that I stroked your soul's strings in silence?
