A clock ticks time by tirelessly
Gears winding like twines of string
With quaint clicking quickly quieting
Until finally time stands still
Broken glass of a smooth clock face
Gears halting in deformity
Glistening shards like the sands of time
Ceasing in their downward flight
A once beating ticking heart of life
Now is lost within a sleepless night
Once a momentum to continued light
Now falls to the ringing silence's might
Time broken into shattered deaths
Until there is simply nothing left
Whenever I'm with you,
I don't hear our clothing fall.
nor the change in our breath,
or the neighbors down the hall.
There is no sound in between us
the heat then speaks instead
it dances with us, back and forth
leaving sentences in sweat.
I have never heard hesitance,
or shame when we are close.
I hear nothing but the sweet nothings
that we already know
So to me we lay in silence,
which is strange to all but us
but our true love is deafening
if you listen hard enough.
You hear me from afar,
but my voice does not touch you.
You no longer want to feel ...
So let me speak with your silence ...
You're like the quiet nights ...
where not even a leaf moves .
And your silence, haunts my thoughts.
But let me tell your silence one thing ...
this, is how the dead live, in silence alone.
And you are more alive than anything I know.
Because I, once heard your voice, so sweet in the night...
You hear me from afar ...
But you, do not want to hear my voice.
You reject it as if I were your own pain,
If I am, then I ask your silence forgiveness...
it was never my intention.
I know you feel my words that fall upon you gently,
even the distance cannot tear them away!
So please tell me at least one word ...
it doesn't have to be of love.
So let the leafs move with the wind ...
and break the silence you carry within.
Bring your voice back to life...
Kill the silence, that hides inside.
