Silent Troubadour

Audrey is a poet, classical singer and voice teacher, recovering attorney and licensed psychotherapist.

Lie gently

upon my breast

O troubadour

whose song

was cruelly cut


and fashion thou

a nest

in skin's crevices

to hold at bay

the fierce darkness


thou didst captivate

mine ear

mine heart

with your guileless song


a recompense

short

innocent.
