"In only two months, Alex became my angel, and in only two months I thought he belonged in heaven, because people like me didn’t deserve to drag him down. But today he is still on earth with me, and now I couldn’t be happier to keep him here." ~ Nikki


Mindless chatter
Fills the air around us;
Everyone talking
In excess.

Their laughter fills the
Air, making it stale--
A mask, a cloak,
A simple veil.

But you and I sit
Side by side,
And I know there's nothing
I can hide--

Even though the silence
Is there,
Filling our
Air while
We are together.
Together,
We exist.
And words are not
Needed, because
We are able to simply
Live side by side
And share time with
Each other.
