If I speak louder than a whisper will you hear me or ignore me?
If you speak softer than a murmur, I will listen like a lover.
Will you keep my words like midnight secrets, locked within a hidden room?
I will keep your words like flowers pressed and perfect, like a book my heart.
If I stand on a cliff edge trembling, will you help me spread my feathers?
I will take flight in the sunlight, I will bear you aloft with kisses.
Notes: The prompt was to write a poem with very long lines (17 syllables or thereabouts). I found that quite difficult, though interesting. One voice or two? I’m not sure…
