Walking to your doorstep home The lazy London rain pouring

Silent words

Walking to your doorstep home

The lazy London rain pouring

On all but our shivering bodies

Huddled next to you

Even if just for warmth

Close enough to hear your heart beat

Yet not enough to know what it wants.

The sound of your words echo slowly

Surrounded by a deafening silence

Where you keep all your answers

Hidden away from my never asked questions.

Unwilling to lose to the quiet no more

I search your eyes for courage

Knowing it's time to speak my truth

Words so used to remaining quiet

Leave my mouth with a bold stutter

As if having not practised the lines

A hundred times before.

Yet you don't do the same with yours

Seconds fill up the emptiness

Until they become an empty whole

The distance between us no longer finite

The warm rain no longer warm

As I begin to realise

That your silence will haunt me

For the days to come

More than anything you say.
