    I gaze helplessly it seems
    into the vast extreme
    which is you, and I see
    all I am and all I'll be........

    I feel encompassed by the thought
    which echoes from my heart, you brought
    me to awareness and you've taught
    so much, inside your realms I'm caught....

    not searching for escape instead
    searching 4 new ways inside your head
    in silence I have found my bed
    resting comfortably, so much you've said....

    without a word, without a sound
    enticing me, we're sacred bound
    enlightening energy around
    us, heightening this extasty found....

    the silence speaks...
    I listen...
    the silence speaks...
    I yield...
    the silence speaks...
    I witness...
    the silence speaks...
    I move...

    thank you One..........

    as i retreat...

    into the darkness of the night
    the silence
    speaks to me

    i listen

    to a story of long ago
    when men would serenade
    and women said
    I DO
    i look at you
    envisioning those times
    of long ago
    and hope...once more
    your hear my song
    of love
    and, so

    when silence speaks
    i listen
    yielding to temptations of flesh and mind
    i witness
    to all the love you've given me
    in the silence of the night
    my heart is moved.:)



    Twofish
    ...i remember you:)
    still, pouring your heart out...i see.

    do what you do, poet.

    peace.
