    Default In Other Words - by Nympheas

    I used to write every day under the pen name SilentDream. So much has changed since then.
    Only sharing what's made it to the page very recently and going forward, which may be far and in between.




    This one was inspired by Cristofori's Dream by David Lanz
    http://youtu.be/UhTKiyNl49E



    fermata



    you read like hesitance

    and a pause that builds before collapsing into more silence
    as my fingers trace your lines that steadily fade...
    Thus I rest on a page that won't turn.

    your hold was like resistance,
    staccatoed breaths pressed against my sighs
    Though my hand hovered near your heart,
    it won't yearn.

    and I swear I forgot to breathe
    when I thought you'd touch me



    Herein, though, there was promise -
    desire tumbling into a swell. There's
    still promise and there's hope within a pause.
    In your silence, I hear
    me - my measured breaths, slowed
    exhalation and, therein, I swear I'm
    lifted regardless.

    This was for a picture challenge




    Siren



    The darkening shades
    of torrential rage slow
    time; the air is still.

    You lower your eyes
    whilst the storm in mine
    dampens your weakening will.

    makes me glad I created this forum, your writing is going to make it a more beautiful place!











    If it's not going to matter 5 years from now
    don't spend more than 5 minutes upset by it ♥

    Shared this picture in a group. Some came up with a response. This was mine:


    I never once felt your lips
    writing “perfect” on every
    inch of me.

    Dozing, I’d feel your fingers
    scripting verse
    across my back.
    I was meant to pay attention
    and read your touch, aloud…
    I even smiled.

    Yours thoughts, in that
    moment and gently felt,
    were still elusive.

    I wondered if your lips
    would ever follow those
    whispered phrases.
    Writing verse
    across my shoulders
    and down my spine.

    I was meant to be kept
    waiting, yet relax,
    within your pause.

    Your silence, in that
    moment, was deeply felt.
    I heard your distance.



    Thank you Grouchie!

    I may have lowered my eyes
    But wait for a moment
    Linger in that space I've created...
    Match my breaths
    Reach for my hand
    and step into my fear

    Hold me, for a moment,
    tethered by the tips of your fingers
    Exhale once I match your gaze...

    I'm here. I'm back now.
    I think I'm ready.



    Thank you Grouchie!

    (Hoping this picture doesn't disappear lol)

    Written for a picture challenge



    brilliance

    I’ve been comfortable with muted days,
    shades of cream and sepia ombré.
    Memories fade, organically shifting.
    Details lost. An essence remains.
    And I’m drawn to blurred watercolors,
    muddled blues and whispers of sage.
    But I long for the pause and the sigh
    after tasting the brilliance of promise.



    Thank you Grouchie!
