We Talk

We talk

About our fears

Our broken bits

The perfect pieces

The hidden corners nobody else has seen.

We talk

About our future

Our mistakes

Our shortcomings

The way we fell in love.

We talk

Until the water grows cold.

We talk

Until the sky grows dark

And the crickets sing.

We talk

Until we are wrapped in warm blankets

And each other.

We talk

Knowing we will never hear our

Deepest secrets used against us

Have our fears turned into angry words in battle

Be cut by our concerns.

We talk

In a safe embrace

Until our hearts are calm

And our bodies drop into sleep.
