Your Words

“It’s only words
And words are all I have
To take your heart away.”

– fr. lyrics of  Words, Bee Gees

 

YOUR WORDS
(for Ebony)

(Black fascinates me.
When I see black, I see elegance.
When I touch black, I feel ambiance.
When I hear black, I sense acceptance.
Your words all come in black…)

they seethe and soothe
not vain, not bane
unlike bubbles boiling
billowed but mellowed
neither geothermic nor seismic.

they are dewdrops on leaves
sparkling teardrops on eyelids
water flowing from a spring
and rain falling on a stream.

your words…

(between
altar and alter
is Ebony.

between
veil and pale
is ivory.)

– words
are between
black and white.
