I Like You When You Speak

I like you when you speak
Speaking words from the many universes inside of you
Thoughts dance in your mind and overflow from your mouth
As if they were trying to break free

You speak with feeling and emotion
I am happy to hear your voice and ideas
Let me hide within your heart and you in mine
That I can know you completely

I like you when you speak your many words
But there is something I find beautiful
When your thousands of words become none at all
And you enter your world of sleep and silence.
