“The sound of your name” (Copyright 2008)

“The sound of your name”


The sound of your name,

resembles ringing bells.

Or the flickering noise,

of the herd of singing quails.

I awaken in the middle of the night,

11, 12, sometimes 2 o’clock,

and I faintly whisper your name.

But your never there-which breaks my heart.

There’s only your picture,

then there’s your name.

Which I say over and over again.

It sprinkles over my head like the touch of drizzling rain.

  1. Reblogged this on richwrapper and commented:
    Wow. Someone’s living in my skin again. I have even less…just the name, the full name, but perhaps the pictures which nightly I play on my twin-screen moviehouse before my face compensates. This’un touched memories and almost put me back under her spell while waking. Thanks, Will.


      1. Lay on! MacDuff! Will get back to you on the question(s) I have on some of your work I had the chance to read. Finding where/how to get to “reblog” was not the first time I have so swirled by the drainpipe of “huh? howzat?”
