Sounds of Love
by Bonney Jo Bott 02/14/2007

Plop, plop, plop.
The drips flow in rivers from my eyes,
The tears.

Thump thump, thump thump, thump thump.
Hear the rapid beat of my heart
When you're near.

Yes, yes, yes!
My whispers
Tickle your ear.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
I repeat incessantly
My Dear.

Be mine, be mine, be mine.
Raymond, my brain echoes
From fear.

Silence, silence, silence.
Life passes
Unfulfilled, austere.

Plop, thump thump, yes, I love you, be mine.
No silence, please
I'm sincere.
