Persons with words

Because we are persons-as differing from people-
There are spaces between us.
Frail threads of syllables and tones
Belling down to fill them.
Ah, how can we know, soul to soul;
With threads that fray?
Or more dreadful:SNAP!
Could we not weave from all these threads
A Rope? A binding heart-to-heart,
Till there are no more spaces?

  1. Love this – thanks for letting me know you posted it 🙂

    There are some people I don’t particularly want to make rope with, but others, with them it couldn’t be thick enough!
