326 ~ Speak low, if you speak love

The sun sets over the horizon
Blurring the lines between ocean and sky
I sit here thinking of how things went
Of when we said our last goodbyes

I miss you, so I speak your name gently
Wishing the ocean breeze to carry
The sound of my voice to you
On angel wings and airwaves as ferries

I say your name in whispers
My exhale shaking the trees
In hopes that it’ll make you shiver
In places one cannot see.

  1. This is really fantastic! All those words hit my emotion button!
    And I love the last four lines:
    ‘I say your name in whispers
    My exhale shaking the trees
    In hopes that it’ll make you shiver
    In places one cannot see.’
    Wonderful! 🙂

    And where do you get those hearts from Britt? I’ve seen that one and a few others used on Jottify occasionally, and have never got round to asking how it’s done. I want one!! 😀

    • I was curious about that too, so like the nerd I am, I looked it up! lol.

      For me, I just hit the ‘Alt’ button, and press #3 on the numerical keypad. If that fails, use the search function on your web browser on how to add hearts 🙂 Apparently you can find anything on the internet these days.

      Thank you Suzy. Hopefully my poetry doesn’t start slacking once I return to work ^_^

  2. Hi Britt – this is a really delicate love poem – and the opening stanza is especially assured (so much depends on the opening lines of a poem, I find – I struggle a bit with those!). Avril Lavigne – well, I am not quite as keen as you clearly are – but this is a very apt and lush song – so love the post as usual!

    • Hi John 🙂

      I struggle with the openings too! I usually work from the end, and then up. They take most of my time.

      Avril is awesome. Perhaps it’s a female thing? The embodiment of a strong, sensitive, sexy woman.

  4. Thanks for sharing. Speak Low if You Speak Love is a beautiful title to a powerful emotion
    fav line:
    “I say your name in whispers
    My exhale shaking the trees”
