Favorite Quote:
The whole wide world has gone crazy, so baby why don't we just dance?

When hesitation interrupts
You improvised script
And the air becomes hollow
As it escapes from your lips

My timid lips beside you
Can always fill the gap
As though premeditated
I know the words left unsaid

But I am only human
I cannot read your mind
When presented with silence
And no clear context

You hide your words beneath
A painted exterior shell
Suggesting assurances
But I know you too well

It festers in my gut,
And intrudes my thoughts

I am only human
Only with a hint
A sense of direction
Even just a word or two

Can my mind understand
The contents of your emotions.
Vague and empty words
Keep me restless and unsure

I am safety
I will never leave you
Why can't you expose
What you trap inside
