the first faint line appears

My pen
silent at first
and then loud
with cacophany of ink
bled first then second line
at first with faint movement
and progressing
til paper etched derp
with stain of words
filling the page
with heart longing
and heart whisphered
shouting in ink
see me
hear me
know me

inspired by Pablo Neruda’s line “I wrote the first,faint line..” found at
