Harmony



You speak
I listen
Words melting as they tumble from your lips
You listen
I speak
But in the night we are but passing ships

You listen
I think
Thoughts mesh and gel as one upon the vine
You think
I listen
Our paths converge at once, they intertwine

You think
I crave
The heart that beats the rhythm of your soul
You crave
I think
And hearts once split asunder are now whole

You crave
I give
Affection and a reason to believe
You give
I crave
The harmony that one can never leave

You give
I take
The pleasure and the company at hand
You take
I give
A heart that seeks a bright new wonderland

You take
My words
And form them into actions with new meaning
Your words
I take
And forge them to a heart devoid of feeling


Your words
I listen
And souls collide entangled in the mist
You listen
My words
Remembering the first time that we kissed

You listen
I speak
Words weave in syllables of sound so sweet
You speak
I listen
Thoughts treasured till the next time that we meet

You speak
I listen
Words melting as they tumble from your lips
You listen
I speak
But in the night we are but passing ships
