Realize (Part 1)


You alone know who I am when I’m alone.
Somehow, you came to realize the language of my humanity.
You saw through the tact that kept me so composed.

Tell me all the little things we’ve missed in the mirror.
Show me what eyes can’t see.

You make me feel different.

New Ways


Last year broke something loose
So many pieces to pickup
Make a little room for hope
Explore until I expire

Inside wants out
Can’t hide this heart
So I’ll seek until I feel love
My mind’s made up

You can see it in my face
Pain painted in my eyes
Lust for life on my lips
Learning new ways to be

I keep going places on my own
Disappearing for days
Bad days have good days too
Savour the sweeter things

Quit holding on
Dreams running wild
Tomorrow’s not a liar
Leave doubt in the fire

No going back

Your Silence


I like your silence
And the volume at which it speaks
Its honesty emits a truth which words sometimes forget
The sound of silence can be deafening for some
Pregnant pauses become overdue until something must be said

You could be cruel
You could be kind
You could also be mistaken

You pick your pauses so carefully that what follows must be heard
Flooding our ears with unthoughtful words is emotional pollution
Have a moment of silence
Breathe and stop
Wait and see
Choose your battles carefully

Your tongue rests with angels in spite of all the hell it could awaken
I may not always understand your silence, but I know where it comes from
Birthed in a place of patience
Raised with peace of mind
Walked a mile with empathy
The space between your words reveals what words can’t

For every Speaker, there is a Listener
For every word, one must be heard

I see your silence
I can still hear what you mean
I feel your silence
When I can understand your heart

Still


Photomicona - Natalia Mindru

When everything seems complicated, I simply want you.

When emotions are running high and we’ve exhausted all reason,
I want to quiet our wounded insecurities with a touch of love.

When my thoughts have become loud and heavy,
I want your lips to quiet my own with a kiss.

When there is nothing to say,
I want us to say everything with that look which transcends words.

When everything seems complicated,
I simply want you.

Set The Pace


image

I can hear you loud and clear from a mile away, and the volume only escalates as you draw near.
Sometimes words just can’t keep up with the pace of our embrace.

We transcend the speed of sound when you kiss me.
The way I look at you spells out just how sweet you are to me.

Let the silence set the pace.
The noise only lasts so long.

If we fall for each other and no one’s there to hear it, did we really fall?
They’re not on our frequency no matter how they may try.

When we speak, let it set us free.
Our hearts won’t keep quiet because no one else will do.

Let the silence set the pace.
Time for conversation to take a timeout.

Desire speaks without tongues once you let it in.
Anything I say or do can and will be used to get you excited.

It will be worth it every time I say your name.
Don’t say it unless you mean it.

Let the silence set the pace.
