Neville

A Thirst Well Quenched

A Thirst Well Quenched

 

A thirst

Well quenched

A sorrow drowned

When the words I seek

Go round and round and round

 

When silence

Say’s it louder than

Any other shouted sound

I don’t want to say I love you

But something else far more profound

    A jolly good write Neville. Yes, and also - 'When at first you don't succeed, give up!' Subtitled 'Ain't no sense keep banging ya head against a brick wall!' lol.
    A pessimistic start to the week from me!

    • Neville

      Try to look on the bright side of pessimism and you might just be blinded by the light thrown on your day ahead.... in the meantime... thank you for checking through my spelling... Neville

        A successful use of the thesaurus in these telling lines Neville - -- a charmingly sensitive write.

          A bird in hand is worth keeping out of your pocket.
          "You say it loudest when you say nothing at all".
          Funny how, after you have a drink or several, your head ends up swimming.

            Thank you DA... the trick is to avoid mixing...

              Had me a second read of this telling love- write Nev and found it this time even deeper in its unique use of perception. The second stanza is methinks a masterpiece - - - - Saved now and in my faves.
