i.

she
doesn't speak

anymore.



if flesh
is a gift

then her presence
is spent.



and he'd
buy the world
for a word

from her lips.


ii.

he
counts the future
among
her possessions

daily.



the seconds
will never
amount
to the first

time he held her;



his hands
might as well
be the earth
that embraces her

forevermore.


iii.

she
still
doesn't speak,



but he
cannot
stop listening.
this is about
one
with
none
to lose.

i feel terrible for borrowing the structure of this poem of mine because of how deeply important that poem was to me. at least it was inspired by the same character.

A little bit of luck, I suppose.

this is really striking, the structure definitely sets a tone for each word... love how it sends shivers while reading, definitely penetrating...

Thanks so much.

I don't mean to sound too presumptuous, but sometimes I'll be writing and a line will come out that makes me say "Whoa, that just...whoa."

(that sounded presumptuous anyway. what I mean to say is that words have a funny way of taking on a life of their own.)

You're most welcome.

I don't think it sounds presumptuous, I think its good creativity that makes you able to write something and like what you've written enough to say woa. I get it when i read old writings of mine. Like i didn't realise that it's actually pretty deep.

Words are just words until put into structured sentences or groups. :)
