habituation

the world stops and stares
the sound of your voice
a lake of pin drops
freeze and thaw mid-air
I can't hear you now
but down come the rain
I can hear you then
I will know your name

  2. It's funny some see this as a love poem and some see it as something darker and I dig that

  3. Lovely transition from ice droplets to rain droplets.

  4. "a lake of pin drops" spoke to me....it's a metaphor for those sounds, voices, ideas, and moments we're too busy or too arrogant to pay attention to

    or whatever...great 40
