The Songs Of Silence

The symphony of your soul
harmonized with the beats
of my heart
in a melodious tune,
which nature composed,
echoed in ourselves

but the orchestra faded
in the rising clamor of a
scornful throng – they feared
music may enchant us
to the forbidden tracts of love.

We laughed at their naivete
as we sailed above the reach
of their graveling din
to share the songs of our silence
and meet in an eternal embrace.
