Monolingual

Monolingual

She came to me in tongues

A whispering, salubrious enticement 

Without ever once revealing

True words

Actual meaning

Unless it was I

Who was blinded by her tones

Like listening to a wind chime

Wrapped in a storm

One enjoys the tinkling

Without knowing whence it comes

Yet, in truth

Despite the cacophony

A solitary voice would be preferred

For silence is golden

And too much language

Is just a distraction
