Inside Us - Poem by lyxo lyxo

So many things have passed
Those that shouldn’t
So many we couldn’t let go
Those, we should

Here’s a silence
Unspoken words torn us apart
Those that keep us hoping
Hope for understanding

Unwritten lies because of this silence
Silence because of love
No truth revealed, only we feel
Feeling of trust

I try trust to be with you
No pain, no gain
No question, no false answer
So, there is my silence

You shut your doors down
You put your self-protection on
Somehow, I still know you too well
Through this wall, I respect your silence

The trust, you can’t share but
A love, we continue to agree on
You leave words inside you
This mutual silence inside us

In one way, you’re blaming me
I pay for your culpability
I don’t mind, ‘cause I know
This excuse is to excuse you

Unfaithful, we are
But you to me, you for her
Me to love, me for our love
You and me, we still are

I don’t mind games
But play it smart
Keep it real
Keep it silent


I don’t believe in you
I believe in love
I had faith in our passion
This feeling, we’re feeling

You show blank sounds
From them, I see no lies
But you avoid truth, you hide facts
You know, I ignored all that

I choose to be deaf
I listen to this silence
I hear care, lust, still no trust
We both know, we must love

I pretend but I’m aware
I say no words but I do know
This relation is with no commitment
We just remain in silent

We’re heading into circles
We repeat mistakes
With everything in us
Everything, despite us

We turned back so many times
Walking on the same path again
Muted in our voices, but not in our heart
Speechless, not emotionless

From nothing we had to what we’ve build
We can’t let go as nothing was us
We’re still here for a reason
Both, we sacrificed for this relation

I keep my request and questions
You keep your feelings and suspicions
Together, we keep our respective silence
Soundless, we carry on sensation

This whole illusion, I’m living
Let me be in my dream, dreaming
Deep down, I know our reality but
I desire, I decide to breathe in delusion


Slowly, our silence changed meaning
A simple lie not to judge, nor to face
I prefer a world with faked silence
Than a space filled by real lies

We lost a battle against silence
I got no courage to let go
You have no guts to end
We’re cheating in love about us

For and against us

    Silence is golden...but only for so long; then it's a killer.
    Good write.
