Theme: Silence


I need to talk to you
What, I don't know
Maybe I know, don't quite recollect now
How do I reach you?
I extend my arms, move them randomly
Want to limit you within my grasp
Little do I understand
You are unlimited, or 
Should we call it beyond limits?
I want to reveal myself to you
To open out, my chest bare, pouring out
There is so much entrapped,
Want to release it all....
Are you listening?
Do you listen to people like me
Who have stories to tell, stories
Which are no different 
For you from any other, or
Maybe they are?
Each story is unique
How does it matter to you? Or
Does it?
I need to embrace you
You are my soulmate, the only one
How do I get hold of you?
How do I invite you into my life?
Or is it that you are already there?
How do I measure your quietude?
Is it necessary?
Isn't you being around all that I need?
Or is it that you are always around?
One just needs to reach out and call
Why don't you talk?
I need to talk to you
What? I need to figure it out
Say things the way you say them
In the ways of the silence!
