While chafing my heart against the sands of time,
I’d forgotten how much you mean to me.
Then you spoke my name, and I remembered everything.
Frantically, I squeeze you, us, the past
into cramped little words–
caged in by a moment of longing.
Wading through the depth of my emotion,
Splashing inky blotches with murky lines
along a worn path– from cheeks to chin to chest–
filling my heart until it overflows into yours.
And my words, “The deepest feelings
always shows themselves in silence, my sweet”
