The Silences

Silences… one of the most intimidating places there is. In that moment when we hesitate, when an answer can’t be reached. Will it come or will it not? How much more do I wait? How more of this silence can I take?

inside this veil, I know
the answer I must say;
what forever entails, I
fear I’d rather hide behind
the veil and not speak,
refrain from places love
may take… what path it
chooses for me;
and yet because I feel
as I do standing next
to you, my fate walks
me down this aisle along
with the energy of stars,
the current of lightning
whose jolts travel in
and out of this happiness
I feel, quietly, inside as
though an outburst may send
you elsewhere when you
are already here beside.
I smile instead and reel
you closer, take my chance
at yes’ than wager(my
heart) on the silences
