Poem Deafness by writer CarolinasWords

Deafness ©

I might have the right words

to let you know how much you are worth;

I could whisper them to you

so quietly that your skin will feel them

and the air of my breath

will softly make the hairs of your neck stand;

but the distance is so immense

that the echo will swallow them all

and take their significance away.
