AJ Silent Voice’s Choice: Picture 2
I pray for time to be no more, to fail
and brace against the daylight hour that draws
too close. For everything is held beneath a veil
of fragile, whispered vows unsaid because
the future in these lips that die at dawn
is only night. You’ll wake to day, but please,
if you’ll just say one word: my name. There; gone
to heaven from your lips. I find my peace.
So wake, my love, today is counting down
the time and steals the seconds that are yours
and mine. Oh, grace me with the depths I drown
in gladly, kisses, touches, nothing more.
So open, Mine, and come away with me
We’re one, we’ll make it heaven, wait and see.
