Print Save Become a Fan
Hot, silent tears overwhelm me,
Lying next to you.
The dawns light brushes your cheek;
I get up, slowly leaving the room.
It isnt easy for me, being so quiet.
I knew you were shy,
Yet I am besieged with questions.
When together we have fun, but why?
Why do I cry? Because I cant give to you
Everything I am, unreturned.
Not saying anything brings me such pain;
I am usually so chatty, so happy.
Staying silent, there is nothing to gain,
But when you wont share, Im so unhappy.
My spirit resides in you, speak, goddamn it!
Tell me the good, the bad;
Speak of the past, your family,
The worst and the best day you've ever had.
Why you love me, what you see in me.
Anything love, tell me anything.
Leave me to my own devices,
And I guarantee I will fill in your blanks.
Not right, but you see they'll have to suffice;
Otherwise, I'll just stop trying. What ever happened to communicating?
We both agreed that communication was the most important thing.
