my midnight confession

Tinny pangs
of an AM radio memory
washed over.
Richness
seemingly varying inversely to
richness
Words danced with words,
flipping off phrases.
Not quite tuned sounds
of perfection.
Rushing
and savouring
and needing
to take it all in.
Before
(And there is always a
Before.)
All darting back into the bushes.
Occasionally peaking out.
Before
(Again!)
Disappearing
until the next time.
Corners of a mouth trending up.
Bemused appreciation.
Moving on.
Accidentally lighter.
Thankfully freer
But, always
Always
Keeping an eye on those bushes.

    Another amazing word doodle!

    I adore “Words danced with words,/ flipping off phrases.”; “Rushing/ and savouring/ and needing/ to take it all in.”; and “Corners of a mouth trending up.”

    *sigh* Your word doodles might make me more dreamy-eyed than a guy playing “Patience” on an acoustic guitar…
