Word Dance

“Affectation of the sublime,
Rain shrill as it meets earth.
Your voice rests amidst the din
Negligent Zephyr,
You promised to see them again,
Heed those chunks of time.
Repeat whisper,
Repeat gaze,
Repeat kiss.
Obtuse fragments of those you loved…
To the dead stare is respite
In ‘vein’,
Impugn indifference.
