You speak to me
In a thousand silent ways
Even though I can’t fathom what you meant.
In my head,
Your sweet nothings always replays
And its top on my heart’s playlist.
Missing you comes in waves
But now it’s drowning me.
My desire only craves
To have you beside me.
Because you’re my envisaged dream!
Sometimes, I try to forget you
But your thoughts run anew.
And even in piercing pain,
Boom! You’re on my mind again!
I just smile at how easy your thoughts kill my pain.
How else can I say I love you?
Do I sing it?
Do I reflect it in my dimpled smile?
Maybe in my lines and verses
But they just might never be enough to express how I feel for you.
