I cannot speak
my voice has fled
but my fingers
tapping on the tabletop
say everything I need to


I can't touch anymore
everything feels like
holding your hand
and my breath stings with
air you're not giving me


I cannot speak
my voice has fled
my hands are tied
another day brings a reality


where every word
spilled from the stars
is tangled in the void between us


I can't write
for your voice has
filled up my fingers
and all the words that
leave my pen
are thrown together
with your warmth
and tossed back out again
