A Carefully Whispered Lie

To every whisper if you listen carefully, you will hear or fail to hear something. ~ Auliq Ice


I know, I know, the picture has nothing to do with the words. Though sometimes I imagine you can hear a quite a few whispered lies in the deafening silence of a softly falling snow. I had other directions to wander my words on this day, but the following poem fell into my eyesight and the day otherwise just became a tad bit melancholy.

“When you left
you left behind a field
of silent flowers
under a sky
full of unstirred clouds…you left
a million butterflies
mid-silky flutters

You left like midnight rain
against my dreaming ears

Oh and how you left
leaving my coffee scentless
and my couch comfortless

leaving upon my fingers
the melting snow of you

you left behind
a calendar full of empty days
and seasons full of aimless wanders

leaving me alone
with an armful of sunsets

your reflection behind
in every puddle
your whispers
upon every curtain
your fragrance
inside every petal

you left your echoes in between
the silence of my eyes

Oh and how you left
leaving my sands footless
and my shores songless

leaving me with windows full of
moistened moonlight

nights and nights
of only a half-warmed soul

and when you left…
you left behind a lifetime
of moments untouched

the light of a million stars

and when you left
you somehow
left my poem…unfinished.
