Velvet Textures

Fluid lines in cursive

connecting letters in a row

Seeping just beneath the surface

leaving traces there, below

A silhouette of wisdom

boundaries -

where communication starts

As brilliant as a prism

shooting arrows through the heart

An element of variants

manifesting deviations

A clear foreshadowed prescient

with a smooth and suave persuasion

Velvety the texture

glossy and polished image

Willing to go full measure

momentary witnesses

Smooth criminals and secrets

with a bold and flashy style

Breaking down resistance

leaving its victim with a smile

    Technically speaking I think this is why cursive handwriting should be taught in schools still so that we can write letters like a long time ago.

  • Having read this through twice, I cannot escape the sense of receiving a handwritten letter through the mail, as Dani has said, "Thoughtfully penned!" By the time I reach the end, it feels like something else, but I'm not sure what.
