In Tandem…


Here’s a nice little write that popped into my head a couple months ago that I sat down today and finished this afternoon for dVerse.  I am going to sit down one day soon and do a recording of this spoken word piece.  Hope you enjoy the intrinsic rhythm of this piece, and I will update it when I can get a recording of myself reading it. Enjoy….

In Tandem

Con-cen-trate…

Feel my heart res-on-ate

with the rhythm

of you

Soul starts to vibrate

nearing your approximate

vicinity – I pick up your frequency

and, like a tuning fork,

start to hummmmmmmmm

in tandem with you.

We fit

soul to soul:

my heart’s key to your heart’s keyhole

unlocks the mystery

of us –

how wondrous!

Whenever you’re near heart starts to race

trying to keep pace with increased breath –

gasping for the air stolen

by your stare.

Our souls merge when we speak,

subconsciously submerged

Trying desperately to purge

the notion of two

replacing with singularity

not you, not me

but we….

And then

moral compass directs me

to close the distance

between my heart and yours.

Two dancers moving

flowing

going to the beat

the beat

the beat

Heart beats so sweet

on soul-case’s drum

beats smoothly doubling

into one

doubly strong…

In tandem …

  2. Love the idea of the tuning fork. I believe we mix best with those living in a similar frequency. 🙂

  7. So loving the word play here, Baj. The rhymes seem to linger for a few second longer just the way a tuning fork hums long after being struck.

    “Two dancers moving

    flowing

    going to the beat

    the beat

    the beat”

    Love that “the beat” continued on in my mind in the background even as I continued reading so your last lines in my head came out as:

    “Heart beats so sweet

    on soul-case’s drum

    beats smoothly doubling

    into one

    doubly strong…

    In tandem …

    going to the beat

    the beat

    the beat…”
