Break the Silence
sungiant

You look older than your age
 1
your unusual brown and blue eyes
 2
forgiving in an intuitive kind of way
 3
The softness of your face interjected
 4
with trench-like laugh lines
 5
and that hair -
 6
 
 
Careless and unkempt
 7
shielding and encircling the
 8
delicate pinkness of your lips
 9
 
 
--
 10
 
 
I miss the way you gently stroked my hair,
 11
then back, one arm draped across me,
 12
a light kiss on my forehead
 13
trickling down to my neck
 14
and still going
 15
 
 
How our north and south lips pressed
 16
firmly against each others
 17
like a magnetic pull
 18
our hands entwined,
 19
our legs wrapped like ribbons
 20
and our skin clinging to one another's
 21
panting between pulsing heart beats
 22
 
 
you said I was beautiful
 23
when I smiled
 24
then you were gone
 25
 
 
--
 26
 
 
and now this,
 27
an unconditional silence
 28
separating the room
 29
pushing me to the other side of
 30
the window, I'm looking in
 31
transparent, an unholy ghost
 32
speaking in tongues
 33
 
 
I want my shirt to be
 34
the one absorbing your tears
 35
I want my face to be
 36
your comfort
 37
I want gravity to forgive me
 38
so that I can inch forward
 39
and settle in your arms
