Silent

Silence speaks the truth 

We cannot bear to hear

When years have passed

And nothings left to share

Silent partners who once

As lovers could not break their stare

Look beyond their lives

A couple cannot hide the truth

When conversation dies

Or wake the love that’s lost inside

Through lies

A bitter wine is poured

Time does not renew that vintage vow

And love it takes a final actors bow

Breaks in two

The curtain call falls on yet another stage of life

The fairytale signed upon the poisoned page

Does end in paper cutting like a knife

Through photos sadly kept

Swept into a box

Sealed without the heart

Which without the key

Now firmly locks

And falls apart

Back
