see you, sit down in one
place and have coffee with you.
We don’t really need to talk.
We can sit quietly and be together
without needing to talk to
each other. How it must be like
to be with you in silence
Right now we always need to talk,
& you know I’m not a talkative
person. I have to always SMS or send
I love you’s through chat messages.
I have to grow accustomed to
conversations until 4 am,
or to sleeping with Viber on, with you
on the other end breathing,
But there are other
ways--like I could say I love you
by just kissing the tip of your nose
or running my fingers through
your long, soft hair
while you’re sleeping.
Your voice on Viber comforts me.
Still, I wonder what happens
if we lose our voices or
if we run out of topics, and
there is no reason to talk anymore.
How would you even know I exist?
