'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

Come With Me, I Said, And No One Knew (VII) by Pablo Neruda

Come with me, I said, and no one knew
where, or how my pain throbbed,
no carnations or barcaroles for me,
only a wound that love had opened.

I said it again: Come with me, as if I were dying,
and no one saw the moon that bled in my mouth
or the blood that rose into the silence.
O Love, now we can forget the star that has such thorns!

That is why when I heard your voice repeat
Come with me, it was as if you had let loose
the grief, the love, the fury of a cork-trapped wine

the geysers flooding from deep in its vault:
in my mouth I felt the taste of fire again,
of blood and carnations, of rock and scald.

Shane Koyczan – 6:59 AM

Shane Koyczan - 6:59 AM

I’ve been told
that people in the army
do more by 7:00 am
than I do
in an entire day

but if I wake
at 6:59 am
and turn to you
to trace the outline of your lips
with mine
I will have done enough
and killed no one
in the process.

Komitas – I am

017 600x355 300x177 Komitas   I am

Komitas - I am

I am your love,
I am the heat of your love,
Yet lonely...

I am your woman,
You, you are my soul
That I depend on...

Your voice sounded as sudden thunder of love
My soul breathed as an elating lightning of spring...

I breathed your breath deep down my chest
And by your fire I became the poet of the flames...
