Wish I knew what to say to you;
But my voice has left me speechless.
Wish I knew what to write to you;
But the paper and I are still blank.
Wish I knew how I feel for you;
But my jumbled emotions leave me apathy.
Wish I knew how to counsel you;
But I have no sound advice.
An internal shouting match;
But I can’t understand the noise within.
And the external result between us
Is a long cold silence.
But when we’re together
In this silent conversation,
We speak to each other
With warm resolution.
