Side by side, walking in strained silence, until

audible thoughts abruptly tumble, landing on

deaf ears.

Eyes lower to half mast, followed by an

uneasy hush.

In the distance, a  wind ensemble of birds

is sensitive to the looming storm.

We walk on…one surrendering sigh escapes your lips…

or perhaps it is mine… I recover quickly,

matching my steps with yours…wondering why

it is so difficult to remember where you end and I begin.

I love the depth in this. . .the silent walk, the sigh, the enmeshment or empathy. This is an awesome expression of an uncomfortable moment.

SILENCE...SOMETIMES...IS GOLDEN. I THINK THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN ONE IS SEARCHING FOR THAT VERY DIFFICULT THING...CALLED...'PERFECTION'. THANKS FOR SHARING, DAWN, AND LOVE, BLESSINGS & MUCH FAITH...TO YOU AND YOURS. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
Reviewed by Axilea MU 11/4/2010
An interesting conclusion that questions boundaries in a relationship.
Not an easy answer, because it usually takes time to see where it all comes from.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 11/2/2010
this kind of entanglement speaks of emotional strangulation, perhaps, rather than soulful co-mm-union. The atmosphere is latent with an emotional menace and brooding. The desolation is pretty palpable and you set the scene well. Reminds me a little of the environment of my mudflats! Makes me hitch my breath - excellently achieved poem, Dawn. xx

This is quite endearing, visually I can see the syncronity of your bodies walking, silenting thinking and being content to just "be".

Lovely poetry,

Yes, but is that not, as it should be? Beautiful weaving of images.
Reviewed by Cryssa C 11/1/2010
There seems to be confusion in these lines... and subdued acceptance of not agreeing, but putting those differences aside because there is no way to separate or divide your heartstrings.

Cryssa :~)

Or sadly, vice versa. Admire the way you think...and write, Dawn.

Dawn, I believe there is a story of some sadness here. Communications strained,no longer easy nor easily understood. A love dying a slow death of fractured familiarity no longer seeking the thrills of discovery. Love and peace to you my dear friend. Jon Michael

Beautiful intensity of sadness pervades these words as if the writer knows the end is near and has resigned herself to seeing it through to the end...

The "togetherness" resounds throughout this masterpiece Dawn. You're a great poet and I like everything your write but this is now one of my new favorites.

"Eyes lower to half mast" - great image Dawn.
Your last line describes well (to me) what all real
relationships should aspire to.

ah, the commingling of souls. know this messy feeling quite well. excellent piece dawn. i can totally relate.

"wondering why it is so difficult to remember where you end and I begin."

On one hand a relationship is so strong that you find mutual strength or as someone else mentioned; perhaps one of you has lost identity of where you stand in this affair. Dawn, this is an excellent poem...well done

Cheers,
Dan

Powerfully mysterious, with so many intricate folds to the relationship and setting. This touches me, and I can't help wondering ~ Is she outgrowing this person she's with, but with him because the years have forever sealed them together?
Ever,

Reviewed by John Flanagan 10/29/2010
Subtly ambiguous, Dawn, good thing/bad thing? The no need for talk scenario or lack of communication..."strained silence" suggests the latter, and yet?
I really love this.

In depth musing here, Dawn. When we merge our lives with another it is invariably true that we give up some of what make us, us. Sometimes we give too much.
Reviewed by George Carroll 10/29/2010
Love falling on deaf ears bounces off and does not connect with the intended heart it was aimed at.
