Cesura

 

Nothing to say

Between us the silence is cold as ice

It cuts through my veins and

lets the blood spill out

hot it melts the ice cap

beneath my feet

I fall under the freezing lake

A blue calm around me

Lets me know there is more

that surrounds me

That's when I realize I need air

Need to breathe

But my body stiff can't swim

I give up I fight I give

in         to       the        night

I realize this is not the same

shadow you cast so big

around me. You sucked all

the light and carried it back

to your secret hidden place.

Now I notice, I see it, my

eyes blink. One. Two. Three.

Four.

I am back where we started.

The silenced cold night,

So I turn towards you and

tell you, what I thought was

a dream was better than

being around you.
