we stand here, facing each other
just like this for we don’t know
I gave up speaking a long
time ago when I
realized you weren’t
listening at all.
take my eyes off your face
and I see all those words that fell
from my lips
how do I tell you I want you
when what I speak is grey
and what you’re looking for is
plain black & white.
strong winds blowing
pure water gushing
hearts shivering fingers trembling
these words unmoving.
seems like years might pass us by
before I learn to speak black & white
and you begin to fathom the grey
