There was a moment, when time was tangible
But memories fade like whispers on a windy day
Coffee, friendship a game of chess.
A love in the eyes that can never be expressed

We carry it around inside
Afraid it will break
Falling down on my knees
A mistake I cannot make

My facade is bare
Feelings that are too hard to share
Often experiences misunderstood
Never saying the things I should

It robs my mouth of speech
You are just out of my reach
Maybe someday you will know how I feel
Because of you my words are real

This is stunning. It speaks to me, maybe too much! But it is full of emotion. Very well written.

Very touching. I agree with cjn, it is a piece that can speak to you.
