I Would Listen To Your Voice

If you asked, I would listen to your voice treasure all your secrets shared by choice hold them lest they fear your letting go for there are things about you I don’t know and yet we share this moment in the lea cool silence asking what would set us free from all that’s tied our tongues in needless lies that fill our tearless eyes with empty sighs. And yet, the truth has slowly ebbed its way across our lives and brought us to this day to turn the tide and wash away the guilt to feel it washing through our toes as silt. For I will listen - place my self aside true friends, ‘tis said, have nothing they should hide. John G. Lawless ©1/12/2022
