Silence

You say nothing 
But I hear it loud and clear
You seem stuck 
And shrouded in fear
I don't know you so well
But I had a glimpse of your soul
There is beauty
As there are wounds to heal
We're both broken inside
Travelled the world alone
Until crossing each other's paths
Where we might truly belong
But it's always never the right time
And it's always never easy
There's a myriad of things
Getting in the way
And never finding
The right words to say
It does feel much safer 
To wallow in this silence
Feeling trapped
But there's a door way out
There are no chains
But fears, holding us back
Maybe time will tell
And distance brings clarity
Let go and surrender 
It'll come if it's meant to be
Take your time and take it easy
I never wait for anyone
But I might still be around
When you're ready

    Two people in the night, searching, and maybe for a time finding each other, but alas the road continues, and the journey parts.

    dear Poet
    when you're done rummaging around
    in the callused bruises of my heart,
    kindly replace the key, where you found it..
