This Isn’t What I Planned to Write

THE ONLY LOVE I KNOW

Your silence is the only love I know.
I hold my breath; I mustn’t speak your name.
A whisper breaks the spell. I watch you go.

Now empty, life will never feel the same.
Each heartbeat echoes words we never spoke.
I hold my breath; I mustn’t speak your name.

Go back to sleep, young longings love awoke.
This waking is the dream, a hollow lie.
Each heartbeat echoes words we never spoke.

I fool myself by never asking why
You hide behind this silent mask in pain.
This waking is the dream, a hollow lie

That fools us both. A lie we can’t explain.
If only I had spoken when I could.
You hide behind this silent mask in pain,

And I believe the silence means we’re good.
If only I had spoken when I could.
Your silence is the only love I know.
A whisper breaks the spell. I watch you go.
