The Keyboard

8 May, 2013

I’m no poet, I’ve said that many times before, but I do love writing poems with Hasty. I am always honoured and proud that among all thousands of followers and dozens of dueters she still finds time to write with me. Thank you my dear friend.

I can hear your voice

In each word typed

I can see your face

In each space laid

You hold my breath

Inside phrases

Linger on speech

Stroking keys

The rhythmic taps

Of your fingers

Are like footsteps

As you guide me deeper

Along the shadowy path

That leads to the place

Where you hide

A shadow begins to form

Remaining just out of reach

With each line typed

Outlines begin to shape

With every paragraph

I am pulled deeper within

And moment by moment

A new world beckons me

A world constructed

And populated by

The words you raise

A place of safety

Where the words warm me

The paragraphs protect me

Every sentence built on truth

That I know I can trust
