Silently Spoken: A Poem

Hi there! I hope you enjoy this poem of mine – I wrote it a couple of days ago but it needed a bit of editing before it was ready for publishing.

A conversation held in fingers,

Between the brush of hands, a glance,

A half smile, a squeeze;

How many times

Has she said

I love you

Without words, with

A laugh from nowhere that escapes

To a confused look –

What?

Nothing. A shaken head,

A smile.

How many times

Has she said

I love you

Without sound, with

Her fingers and her lips and

Her eyes, how many things has

She not said, that she meant,

From her heart, but left

To simmer in her mind, bursting

With feelings, and

With truth;

How many times has she said

I love you

In her head?
