High Springs, Florida
i trembled as i heard your voice
quiet in the reciever...
with my wall yet
i feared that you would
break it down--
that i would not be able to crouch
low enough behind my unfinished safety
in a crude attempt to guard my
i pleaded with not a word,
my soul screamed out in whispered silence;
i hoped that you would hear...
familiar words descended from your lips
and all around fell silent.
the world stopped moving for
half a second.
before i knew, i'd responded
with the same--
how can i deny my heart,
how can i hide behind my wall...
you didnt try to break through,
you merely stood at the foot
my structure nearly disappeared...
three words, my friend, three words--
i trembled when i heard...
"i speak in written word--my lips, no sound may utter..." dgvarner
