    He speaks to me
    Without opening his mouth.
    My heart pounds
    Powerful energy
    These things I know
    This fire burns so

    Like lightning’s strike scorches
    He burns holes in me
    with the eyes in the back of his head
    The tension is paralyzing.
    I can smell the burn...

    He can hear me inside his head
    and
    I believe the sound of his voice to be s
    ome kind of musical angst.
    Nothing that melodious should hurt
    So bad.
    When he grabs the mic,
    I feel so sad.
    The resonation is vexing
    I didn’t know
    I’d need protection
    My heart is breaking from the
    Lack of direction it takes
    It never makes it
    directly to my ears.
    It’s there
    for everyone to hear.
    He moves women to tears.
    Before, when we did speak
    that sound hung for weeks
    around my heart
    Kissing and caressing me
    Speaking to the best of me
    He was very necessary
    For my daily vacations
    Looking sideways
    and past me now
    And still seeing me
    I want his voice to be
    the
    Last thing I hear
    Before I slip into REM sleep
    It’s a mess see,
    I admit wholeheartedly,
    though part of me
    Wants to just forget any of this ever happened.
    Especially the most beautiful part.
    That silent art
    of being in each other’s company.
    And though captivatingly
    he parted my sea.
    That wasn’t it.
    He was a friend to me
    Seeing the hidden stuff.
    He was a great detective.
    Knowing that I hid from the world
    What I thought was defective, my rough edges.
    My need to be wild. A child.
    He just let it be.
    He seemed to enjoy that part of me
    Indulging my need for solace,
    Encouraging me to smile.
    He kissed the child hiding behind my eyes
    and asked her to stay awhile
    I set aside my sinuous character and
    Let the free me be exposed
    I guess I was mad at him because
    Now he knows my secrets.

    One night he spoke some words to me
    That he had written to describe
    our situation
    and though he didn’t lay a hand on me
    I swear listening was like love making.
    It blew past my ear
    and some caressed my neck.
    To my brain it did enter
    and down my spine,
    surrounding my heart to destinations
    he would willingly enter
    I became
    addicted to the feeling of his voices resonation.
    It surrounded me
    before I even heard the sound you see.
    I long for the vibrato that hit me
    before the words he spoke.
    Blessed cause of the things it broke
    and threw away.
    Like my fears, my reserve, my uncertainty.
    I assume that I am not easy.
    Even just in passing, so he made it happen.
    Surrounding me in softness and quiet.
    The riot of my mind faded in his presence.
    Erica and Ziggy number 11.
    It’s good theme music
    when you’re on your way to heaven.

    But I wonder? Cause sometimes I be trippin…
    is it him I’m missing or is it just the kissing?
    The emotional bandages
    that life hands you
    when
    the place that hope springs eternal
    Begins to fade into disrepair.
    Are no joke.
    I dare
    say, that I miss what was
    necessary. Not exactly the person
    who made it happen.
    More like the situation
    Just the circumstance of attraction
    As lovely as it is.
    My heart pounds
    Powerful energy
    These things I know
    Even though
    we don’t get down like that
    no more.
