got hooked in my ear a whisper so gentle
strayed for awhile got lost in a circle
sounds vibrating and fear was instilled
i broke down awhile ’till spaces were filled

thoughts would leap from case to case
doubting views and notions, dozens of “what ifs”
the world is a wheel spinning slow in place
judge not my heart to be real or solidly stiff

voices emanating from here and there
awash with unheard silence and heeded glare
sailing across my mind finding its port
to dock and pick up new freight to transport

felt the sadness of voices now i hear
seeing pits of yesterdays filled with history’s tears
heart and mind have toiled in tandem hand in hand
rough chants of the past demand the current stand

I have the…

lips that only whisper
to reveal the truth
nose that slides straight
to bridge our hearts so smooth
eyes that at times lights up
to make known to everyone
that this sincere heart
loves you and can’t be undone…

Alone

alone in the corner of my mind
thoughts are drifting far
into the innermost of myself
talking with the silence
waiting to talk back at me
to smile and give me a hug
and it did whisper
“I love you, I’m here beside you”

but the voice I heard
was a voice from within me
from the corner of my mind…
