Monday Poetry Train: Hop On!

Your Silence

Silence
rest
a pause between notes—
you sleep.
Your body curls against mine
as you love me.

Awake
your voice rumbles
in the distance.

Your heart beats
Your sinews settle
Your stomach snarls
over the meal I made you.

I nod
your lips round and move
your words settle in the silence

For in my soul’s song,
you love me.
