Speechless – Kadeem Beresford-James

Here, words mean


because words are not

what I hear


And word is not

a sense

it is a program.

And I am not

a machine

because they don’t feel

what I feel

when I feel


you on me

me in you

teasing and tasting in terrific torture.

And there are no words

just your breathing

and my breathing


then winding down,

mirroring our hands,

and legs,

and tongues,

encouraged by sound

guided by instinct

wanting for nothing


than more.


is bad with names, good with details, and enjoys a good drink. Previous editor of Roehampton Writing Society’s Anthology 2012 and co-founder of Talking to Strangers.
