deciphering silence …

you and i

shielded by silence
barred from ourselves
insured against feelings

exiled hearts
building ramparts

a berlin wall
that may fall

so my friend
lay your head
upon my chest

and let my fingers
run through your hair

lulling you gently
to rest

life is far too short anyway
to squander even a day

so rest
my friend


and lay your head
upon my chest
