Ocean of Words

You pretend like you don’t know,
And you act like nothing’s wrong,
And I do the same.

An ocean of unspoken words
Lies between us, and so we
Make strained small talk.

On our minds are words we don’t
Dare speak, and issues too gigantic
To wrap our minds around.


The Light

It was pitch black darkness,
Month after month,
Until I was worn out.

Then your light showed up,
Making me smile wide,
And laugh until I tear up.

You stay by my side
Through the turmoils,
To bring me comfort.

I don’t believe in signs,
But everything points to you
Being the light I asked for.
