“The skies are grey and I am blue,
A storm is coming but, from you, no news,
As the rain falls, nostalgy soaks my soul,
How come, without you, I’m still whole?

I could hope for the storm to clean my heart
As it eases the pain of an unsettling long silence
That keeps me awake playing back memories
I can’t seem to get past night after night.

I know the silence haunts you too,
Twice you had to break it thus far,
Quickly going back to it as if you
Regret it, damning yourself and blaming me for the past.

This nothing between us is quite loud,
Overflowing with longing and self-doubt,
As if we both haven’t been keeping quiet
Words of love we want to say out loud…”
