(23/30) The Sound of Love

The prompt for day twenty-three over at NaPoWriMo: write a poem based in sound.


How many of us
have used the phrase
butterflies in the stomach
when describing the 

feeling of love?

Can you hear them
fluttering over blood
thumping throughout
your body like a Saturday
night dance floor?

Maybe love sounds like
a war between solitude
and surrender


or


continuous tank tracks
rolling over sanity


or


birds on a Sunday morning
singing by a lake
near an open bay window
in a cabin where bodies
paint each other with
silken bristles made of
sunlight and sweat;

the swishing of brush strokes
harmonizing like an aquatic choir.

Maybe love sounds like drowning.
