Empty Words…

I want to write such lonely words
That break your heart a thousand times,
To arouse each hungry depth of emotion
Stolen from attended places by your lips,
Did you ever see me as more than a blank page?
Parallels denied by our ink and scripture
Through affections singular premonition,
A wall of silence stands before your creation,
Leaving our lexis as empty as my crying soul.

    A wall of silence stands before your creation,
    Leaving our lexis as empty as my crying soul.
    I agree with Zara’s comment. Powerful imagery, yes a stunning poem!
