The Sound of Your Voice

It was more than the sound of your voice
That vibrated in the innermost
Chambers of my heart
As the echoes refused to seize.

I looked forward to seeing you again
Wondering what you really were like
Because when we met
I didn’t take notice really.

There was something alike
That emanated from you to me
Later I knew it was
Our same nature of mind.

As always my head
Began its many fantasies
And I wish not
Because I fear that road.

Twice I took it
And twice I went in deeply
And twice I was wounded
Terribly.

Now you are before me
As I peep through a window
Into your mind
And I fear, I fear.

I fear of digging deep
I might have the strength not
But everywhere I turn now
I hear the sound of your voice.

  1. theres somthing so attractive about that road, that non can explain, with all the bogey
    features,stakes in da heart and moments that feel like holy water and garlic to a vampire, we still plunge in, regardless of how far away we have leashed our selves from that journey, we all keep getting sucked into. You have got a chance to liven your heart and live longer dont be held captive by your fears. Bunjee jump into. I said Bunjee jump, so u can always be alert to be pulled up back.
