smile & silence : Two posts for #OctPoWriMo

I skipped writing yesterday , So please bear with two poems in this post [ both off the prompt perhaps ]

His smile

slight curve
of the silent lips
he fills my soul
slowly, sweetly;
sweaty palms
on my skin,
fingers sketching
trails of sin,
sigh, moan,
his eyes shine
oh love,I lust for
the way you smile…

Today’s prompt is silence. I have rarely liked being silent or silent people. there was a time when after a while , silence would make me uncomfortable. It changed when I had to move to a new city and was alone most weekends. Here is a thought on those days –

Lonliness – a mistress I keep
for company in nights
when all world sleeps
but not my thoughts;
silence – the child i never sought
until one night the knocks
on my heart’s door
took away my sleep;
there was much to learn
and so much more to know
about my love , my fears,
my denial and the pain,
my acceptance , be it late.
There was much to let go of,
the world was no more known
silence and loneliness took over
and I was never the same again.

This is for OctPoWriMo # 13 , 14

Spread the love, spread the word ..

  1. Wow so beautifully done.
    You always awe me with your words and these were no different.
    First invokes passion and the second makes us love silence.
    Such is your magic πŸ™‚

  2. Now there would be 2 comments for each, so please bear with me
    His smile- Its one of those poems with which anyone would feel connected. And smile at the end of it. Isnt it amazing? Thats how exceptionally well you write.
    Loneliness- I really liked what you write, how you write but I sort of like loneliness. I take advantage of it, do some self enlightenment, talk to self, do things which I love, so I guess I couldnt connect much to yours. Or maybe because you went through it on a much different level.
    Loneliness- a mistress I keep
    The first line itself is a killer! By god!

  3. Both of these poems are breath-taking Nimue.
    His Smile … I read this one and I could not stop smiling. It’s wonderful! And yes, the sins and sweaty palms part – perfect description.
    Second poem :
    Loneliness as mistress and Silence as her child – such BRILLIANT imagery! I’m stunned!
