A NAKED LANGUAGE ~by Romeo Della Valle




The heart is deceived
By a weaker tongue
That is bound by captivity,
A feeble voice-uncertain wrong
Is divested of word’s gravity!

Let my silence be stripped
Of a real story:
A naked language barely heard
And below the surface,
A deeper need damns the mind
Which bridges no word!

I told of nothing at all when I called,
So imprisoned was I by fear
That if I saw an open door,
I would not trusted it to
Suddenly disappear!

The walls around me
Were tightly closing,
Pressing out the air from my lungs,
Trapping myself within a building
Slowly vanishing from the horizon!
