Poem: Murmur – 23/08/20

I murmur into the darkness,
whisper softly,
I breathe,
complex heart-song,
twisted tuning,
haunted melodies,
I open my eyes
only to see
a triptych of beauty,
artistic finery,
talent conjoined
with colour refined in shades only for me.
I murmur,
I murmur,
I murmur,
softly, now, see?
I traverse through my mind,
my brightness the spotlight
which allows me
to see the artist’s
work, one of a kind, freely.
Internally I heave,
and I breathe,
heavier still,
and I postulate that this
will be everything
that I have ever wanted,
been required
to ever see.
