On Silent - Poem by Nick Stanton

That time we spent on silent
Tones breaking and disguised
Neither one compliant
Not expectant or surprised

Easy now to change too much
and leave so much behind
No connecting kiss or touch
You didn`t think i`d mind

Thoughts stream clear but words still fail
We couldn`t make them fit
Those scale to scale discordant moves
Ending up as spit
