you speak to me
in tongues that we
taught ourselves-
young and naive
we let ourselves
become exposed,
but never overgrown

and through all this,
we love with a love
that's been denied

and so we beat on,
against the returning tide

This is an elegant peice of poetry. You're so simple but within these simple lines you create eloquent lyrics.
