The Secret Room of Velvet

Like raindrops falling on the sea
I could not hear your voice,

but I saw your eyes
and knew your words by heart.

Remembering another night
when I wanted to put my fingers

inside your mouth,
to tell you how you made me feel,

I left without a word
turning my back on sorrow.

And last night there was rain
against the window,

I heard it in my sleep
like a dream shared with the breeze.

  1. Interesting piece of writing, my friend.
    Sorrow never sounded so soothing.

  2. I really like the way the mood is set here. The first line in each stanza sets up and the second delivers on the build up. Great structure and tone!
