Poem: Chirpy Little Bubbles – Text and Audio – 25/06/20

Communication cruelly cut,
aren’t I a sight to see?
A trembling, blubbering,
emotional mess,
the stress is
clearly affecting me.
 
Why did you
withdraw your words,
love?

Was there 
something untoward
that I said?
 
Will you and I be apart forever?
My unintentional
offense meaning
I’ve made my bed?
 
Oh, darling,
how I will
miss you,
those cheeky,
clever thoughts
you’ve shared,
 
while I am here,
absolutely annihilated,
decimated by you,
my formerly
treasured sound,
my prize.
 
Because what I
long for most,
more than anything
in this world,

is to
capture bubbles
encasing your words,
your voice,
in shimmering iridescence,
 
and when I will
pop, pop, pop,
these little bubbles,
your charming, warming
voice will be
brought forth
only to me.
