In throes of passion
he never screams her name
and she wonders whether
he is ravishing secret loves
in his mind.
Lovely and sharp.
“What do I think?” I think that there’s only one throe of passion here.
One throe, two throws? 😉
Well, I used the word on the grounds that it should exist!
I love the way this poem says so much in so few words.
Very intriguing! Is an empty mind worse than a deceiving one?
And is either implied here?
I suppose it depends on your perspective.
hmmmmm, a silence is golden moment perhaps! or could it be that some lovers would prefer the whisper of their lovers name in tender moments . . . or, like most men, two things at once??? are you crazy, i cant remember my own name in such moments 😉 lol
