Why Can't You Hear Me?


It's just another day together

We talk

We laugh

We leave

I talk long way home going over everything I meant to say

Well say with my mouth anyway

I tell you you're beautiful by the way I stare

Every time we talk I show my trust in you

With every apology acceptance I tell you how I mush I believe in us 

By our lingering hugs I tell you I never could and never would let you go 

And I tell you I love by all these things and more

My body is screaming these words

But you still don't hear me ...
