I don’t need your words for company
Neither do I long for your emails
I just need your silence
And your shadow trails
Believe me I am fluent in silence
Two cups of coffee, a cigarette and a copy of your favorite book
You and I…and just the two of us
Turning over the same pages….reading between the same lines..
Imagining the same visuals….
In the silence of our conversation…
We sit next to each other…
Believe me I am fluent in it..
