Blaring Silence

Stretched out side by side
A boy and a girl.
Sleep escaping each in turn,
Minds colliding in loudest silence.

Charged orange vapor floats above
The boy and the girl.
Particles electric tangible now,
Glowing invisible in the air.

Ears ringing with his thoughts,
This girl--
How can she sleep
When he's thinking so loud?

Head swelling with images of her
That boy--
Her voice on loop, undressing
Her in his waking dreams.

Consumed by deep disquiet are
Our boy and our girl.
Pungent tension binds them static,
Neither grasping the hush as love.

Very loosely inspired by "Los Novios"
