"Sitting on Emotions" by Frances Ohanenye

Golden silence smiled at us lucky to let attraction simmer

Like the witches’ effective brews

Feeding hearts and emotions

Safeguarded from each other’s unintentional cruelty

Silence spoke powerfully to reluctant hearts

Asking to let emotions rest from weary, unsuccessful visits

So hearts can build castles once again

Found in Cinderella’s dreams and fantasies

Silence spoke authoritatively and smiled wisely

We listened and let raging emotions quench

Seemingly insatiable thirst

Using orchestrated neglect and planned ignoring

We wait for golden silence to speak again

We sit on raging emotions still

---"Paper Is Not Silent!" My dream has loved paper so much for so long because it gave influence to the parched voice of a fashionista poet. Finding this outlet, that voice is now replete with expressive sound.
