Poem 20160120

i can’t hear the wind
above the sound of your voice
as you speak

the words in my stomach
fight to be free
but inch like slugs
too slowly to make
a difference

too slowly to start
a sentence before
the sound of the wind
engulfs us

  1. The wind eventually wins. Screams in the stomach can’t overpower the voice speaking. The wind can be scary. It is capable of so much power to alter whole life times. It is a good thing to beware of the wind. The voice must have realized that eventually. Great presentation. – jk
