Eavesdropping

by ddavidd   Jun 30, 2017



Eavesdropping on the moments of loneliness
when we are together,
this is how we hear
each other’s souls,
it is how birds eavesdrop
in the sheer silence
of our devotion!

Eavesdropping on the moments of togetherness
when we are lonely,
entwined in each other’s arms,
this is how our loneliness
eavesdrops
on correspondence of our heartbeats
in tick and tock pulsation
of lastingness.

    Frank, this is just lovely. It has a twinge of longing there and beauty of how in the stillness you and your love find each other. Beautiful-
