A Song of Soft Syllables

written by: J C Thomas

@authorjcthomas

 

A song of soft syllables echoes in your oval room.
A red cave where your tongue
whisks breath and
whips walls of flesh.
Your voice,
rippling over vowels like rocks
on the riverbed,
holding speech together.
Falling over the edge,
your lips quiver,
your voice falling
like a waterfall.
