Breathe life into me, for your arms I have ached
my lips have parted for the sweet taste of your silver tongue.
as i tell myself that all is right,
as I hope for things which I haven't seen.
Silent as I lay here in this eerie world of darkness
as I lay awaiting the hope of a new beginning.
The light, how dim it has grown as I walk down the hungry streets.
I have breathed in the air of bitter recourse
after the elation of our love has crashed after these many years.
How could I have known what the silence meant,
the desperation hidden behind veiled eyes.
