Inside your words

by Melissa   May 1, 2006


You rock my ship
into a hypnotic lullaby
within your sea of words,
and flip it inside out
where my soul
drowns before you
in an unsuspecting state
of isolated desperation...

I suck every ounce
of your bittersweet pain
into every pore
of my wanting flesh,
like a pale fish
searching for her ocean...

I'm suffocating
in your colorful world
of heartbreaking imagery,
but I bow
at the exquisite details
that leave a trail
to your lovely broken heart...

And that perfect hue of gray
that rolls off every syllable
with such honesty
paralyzes my intentions
and forces me to listen...

I'm hooked by the belly
in your breathtaking scenery
of unusual wordplay
and I cannot breathe,
so if your voice
is not meant to kill
then I'm dying
for no reason at all...

    This stanza is just on point. I need no say too much or I will ruin the moment.

    Well written. Choice of words is really great. This should have won. I will give it a try.

    I'll have to copy Seyella's "it took my breath away" to put my awe into words. Amazing, wonderful, extraordinary.
