Of Words Unspoken


Sitting together voices silent,
but language is spoken
by the touch of your body next to mine,
I love you in tender discourse
by arms pulling me closer.

Contented sighs released
from deep within
tell of heart’s peace
in loving companionship
cocooned within our intimacy.

Communication is not only
in verbal expression.
The body speaks
to a heart that listens,
a beautiful articulation
of words unspoken.

Body language is probably the one that is impossible to fake!

The language of 'togetherness'. . :) the language of 'brushing away his hair falling over his eyes'. . The language of 'silently linking arms while walking'. . .
The loudest language of all. :)
