To Be Near You

Your speaking voice

Makes me regret my ears


And I'm considering poking them out

Because it seems

you are about to speak again


No? Blesséd silence?

Praise God

For little miracles

The anguish of the speaker's

The anguish of the speaker's emotions radiates with intense power off the lines of this poem.  If this is an actual account of your experience, my heart goes out to you.  I am, however, glad to see another poem from you.  This poem is so intense that it hurts to read it; and that is true on a second or subsequent reading; which makes it a very successful and excellent poem.

   So let me say, here:  great poem!

Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
