The things I never said to you

whilst in the flesh

you can now hear loud and clear

with every beat of my heart

That my voice was drowned

out in the cacophony of the universe

is of little import

Because without flesh in the way

I rest- knowing that

you finally understand me

through the sighs of my soul

So often, we lose someone  without sharing our soul with them- our voices drowned out by the noise the world brings with it. I wrote this poem to reflect the idea that once flesh is gone, that unseen world becomes clearer and the voice of the soul, louder. Those words- unsaid are now revealed- as plain as day.
