Silent

i want someone to be silent with

i have plenty to talk to

at

with

among

but not one to cavort in the silence with me

let’s share a secret, shall we?

sweeter than any kiss

more passionate than any embrace

devoid of words

and time

and place

let’s make a quiet that tells a story

i can tell you my entire life without speaking

even one word

if you’ll let me

and i want to hear yours

your story

your song

performed in a lull

i want to cry out in rapture

without having to open my mouth

and break into laughter

without breaking my hush

let us be silent together, my love

shall we, be...
