waiting

want me
mutable
losing you
the gurgling water
sucks your voice dry

cup the air
to my ear
no recollection of sound
too nice
to tell me -disappear

i don’t want you
to go either
desperate for seduction
a respite
from this monotone tapping

spoken

said it
out loud
did you
hear sound
feel rumblings
winding through
corner rooms
touched by
sunned passions
boldly brave
i ensued

trespassed into
barred windows
jailed doors
hovering beneath
cellar floors
creaking boards
you shutter
held breath
once more…

removed syllables
and answers
no sorry
to tell
what happens
next is
nobody fell
