I sought to delve deep into your silence;
Torment me not with righteous defiance.
You wish to tempt and test with challenge;
Shall strive and honor this sweet alliance.
In silence, I weave these poems of love;
Whispered these vows heard further above.
Your eyes which speak besotted alone;
Having power to melt a heart of stone.
Who knew that silence could be so loud;
Like rain which pours from darkest of clouds.
Your silence it tears near corners of heart;
But better than words to bade us apart.
Silence won’t dampen the passion and fire;
Do help me fulfill your dreams – desire
The sessions of sweet clandestine thoughts;
Lest lips had spoken would soon have forgot.
Silence is such – lies somewhere between;
Beneath twilight soon now softens the scene.
At last you spoke – addressed me thus
Each night I dream and think of us.
