Words slip so easily from loose lips

Releasing secrets meant for eternity

Their meaning resonating through the atmosphere

Causing ripples in the air around us

Washing icy cold winds through hearts once pure

Waving farewell to resigned contentment and ignorance

Welcoming the fury of considered insightfulness

The power of whispers made in jest

  2. Such strong poetry. This is class!

    The secret seems to be that you have achieved depth in simplicity. Every word contributes to the message of your poem.

    It is very powerful and moving.


  3. This is an excellent poem, Eloise.
