Deafening

Deafening

By Annalie Buscarino. 

It was silent.
The clearing on the hilltop,
ages of passion beating beneath our bodies.
The stillness of twilight,
pounding blood through the branches of our souls.
Inky curtains of water
sifting through promises from honey-coated lips.
Our cores twined together as one,
a pulsing harmony of
stories and storytellers’ fires
flaring up to the stars as a
rebellion to the gods,
the moon blazing its
endless finalities.
It was silent.
