Words! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

“ .”
He said.
And again:
“ .”
He looked around
unable to find

that would
begin to explain...
only bunches of silence
growing like dull weeds.

Suddenly he saw
a solitary colourful:
“I don’t know…perhaps…maybe...! ”
He wrapped her
in it.

She looked good
in it.
The hug fitted her

She looked lost
in its embrace.
She could speak
only in tears.

His heart silently said: “I’m sorry... love! ”
They talked in bed
using only their bodies
for words

    Called the 'language of love...' The look, the touch, the feel, the eyes...and not a word spoken. Wonderful! (Report) Reply
