Always

Every moment when I close my eyes
My lips speak your name like a prayer running to you
And I lose myself in dreaming of your beauty
Breathless as my hands try to hold you.

Every moment when you’re away feels like capital punishment
So I sit here putting my words to sleep as they cry longing for you.
I wait for your footsteps to illuminate my path, I wait
Always silent and humble in front of  my happiness.

Silence

You will never perceive
the depths of this sadness
black aura around my heart
intricate story of this living creature
that looks at me from every mirror.

Silence knits my line of thought
and my whole being screams for absolution
for the sin of being born inside this dark book.
Let me fade unknown, if there’s no path to the light
I must die to find it.
