Loud thoughts

Unattached balloons and birds are cruising the blue sky.
No one seems aware of them and out of sight they fly,
These thoughts, too noisy in my head where I can’t lie,

Screaming pain in orange lines that no one hears, gone by
Far beyond where unattached balloons escape to, high,
Exploding in the universe. Why, I wonder. Why?

There: a silence in our love, or so we often said,
Only fading whispers, and some sighs would leave our bed,
That was so obvious from the day we wed.

Then you took me to a place where children played, they set
Off bright and light balloons. ‘t Was there where we made a bet:
the orange ones would be the fastest; it were the red.

These thoughts, too noisy in my head where I can’t lie,
Exploding in the universe. Why, I wonder why
That was so obvious from the day we wed.

  1. “There is a silence in our love” is such a beautiful line and thought and captures what it is to be “complete” with someone. Thought are with you always

  2. This is beautiful Ina. Such power in your words “Screaming pain in orange lines that no one hears, gone by”. Love and hugs ❤️ Xx

  3. You were having so much fun with the English language there, that I didn’t realise the poem rhymed until the second read-through.
