starry sky black highway silence

Silences stretch between us
and I wonder if you can hear the words
I canít speak

Iím listening, ear pressed to the walls
waiting for you to dip your tongue
into your thoughts
and let them loose on a world
that doesnít much care for their darkness

If I could speak in a way that you could hear
Iíd tell you I love you
and that I donít mind the darkness
of your thoughts

You are allowed to be you †
no matter your state of mind
no matter how dark
no matter how deep
the anguish of your soul

It doesnít change the state of my heart
or the depth of my longing
to reach out and touch you
just to let you know Iím here
anytime you want to talk
though youíve long forgotten how

And so the silences stretch between us
a never ending highway
of unshared pain and forgotten laughs
that I canít seem to break through
into the heart of you
