When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…


I will fall again

I fall under the influence of the blues  
    beats and sounds  
this silence and that elusive sharp note  

I wait until you feel as I do  
until you observe rhythms in the moon  
  until my hand is held by yours  

We dance at a melancholic tune
full of jazz-richness
bursting tango-passion
with a slow bolero-beat

The lights are dimmed slowly
We are in a fantasy-looking forest
You lead my steps
I follow with little resistance

One more turn
We are back
  Music  StopS  
You look into my eyes       smile

Time  StopS  with the silence
Your right hand refuses to leave my waist
My body feels the warmth of your touch

Soft sounds reinitiate the clocks

You and I   dance
       fallen under the influence of music

I am smiling
 I’m falling

You pulled me closer
  You fell

   under the influence
Ready to fall again

Prompt > dVerse Poetics – Under the Influence of Music :
Today I wrote under the influence of Fallen by Presuntos Implicados & Randy Crawford:


Gothic times

Manipulative sadness  
      vivacious master of the grievance we wont damage
      casual echo
of a sassy duple in a resonant fugue

A night-spread lavishly disturbing us

Short  sparks  of vibrant violet light
single vision fighting a vacuous exchange
of psychedelic music

A sky slathered with sumptuous darkness

 Oscillatory feelings
  jazzy  beats
stark dialogue

Gothic times approaching
