Reflections of yourself

Do you see yourself in me
When we walk amongst the leaves,
While we gaze to the stars
That blanket our home in soft light?

Between the day and night

Like day and night
We were bound back to back
Lashed by the laws of love
Understood only by the moon
And the sun.

While you aren’t speaking
Because in the silence
You tell me more than all of the intricate words

I lost my words

On a windswept castle
Perched above a glittering village
A volcanic wind blew through our hair
And smelled of forgotten words

So we went through the old and rocky avenues.
We spoke about the life
Of a grain of sand
And all of its journeys,
And all of the places it knows.
