Traitorous Sigh

Traitorous Sigh

Secrets Hasten to Unveil Me,
Rhapsodizing in my Fantasy,
All a-Slander in my Protestations,
Comparing me to the Chiding Sea
That Tosses her head when She is Fair,
And Glistens when She is Vexed with Rage;
Yet I, with Skill not Waking to Unfold me,
Stand Silent and Mutely Turn the Page.

Vagabonds in shackles Raising
Treacherous Voices in Symphony,
Like Caterwauling Felines, Unharmonious,
While I Listen in Awestruck Litany.
Just as this Discordant Wailing
Plays Traitor to my Solicitous Sigh,
Such am I Without You here,
And Thus am I when You Whisper “Good-Bye”.

      1. Morgan, I am really enjoying your writings. In fact, you won’t believe it when I think about you “How beautiful this person writes!”. Yes, rest assured, there is at least one person who not just understands but regards your writing as well 🙂 (When I write, I have the same questions too but I am happy I understand what I write even if others don’t. Lol.)


      2. You are so very kind. It means a great deal more to me than I can say.
        THANK YOU! 🙂
        By the way, your site intrigues me! I cannot wait to sink my teeth into more…..

    1. 🙂 Thank You Claudia. Its rarely intentional, I must confess, but I’m always relieved/ amazed when Im done writing to see where the words have taken me.


    1. Thank you Jackie 🙂 I don’t always read my poem aloud, for whatever reason. But its wonderful to hear that someone does 🙂 so glad you enjoyed it and thank you for visiting!
