She Said Hush

She said, hush,
And undressed me.
Undressed me with her eyes.

She said, hush, and I
didn’t say anything.
She said, God made us simple,
we only make it complex.

I said, Are we simple or complex?
She said, I don’t know.
I said, When you know
will you tell me?

She said, Hush and listen.
But there wasn’t anything
to listen to.
Just our beating hearts.

  1. Je ne parle pas français. Mais si je faisais, je dirais quelque chose comme : ” Votre poésie est très bonne. Je ne vous connais pas. Mais j’aime C.S. Lewis et pour cette raison, je pense que je pourrais comme vous aussi.”

    I completely cheated. Courtesy of Yahoo Babel Fish.
    My fake (and probably unintelligible) French aside, I do really like your writing.
