A Loud Heart's Silence
And I'm different now, I know.
The war in my head is still loud,
but I found a new quiet in everything.
You keep trying to reach me
while I'm trying to pull myself
away from you.
I wake up in the middle of the night,
wondering if you're on the wrong side of the world,
and maybe that's why sleep continues to elude me,
but the heart moves forward—
it has no choice, and
I have no choice to move along with it.
