words passing


my appetite is gone
finished with our words;

i need the silence to speak

to pull apart the words
shatter them in suspended air
dissect their origin back to bare  

can you truly understand what you speak... 
are your words in
if you've yet to enter your heart

i can't afford a disconnect
death can't be our only concept
drowning in a world of dry bones
only connecting hearts of stone

i could start in your eyes
brave the journey into your sight
dive down your chamber soul
let a little life dwell within your walls
