you know I think we could really talk

if all these words don't get in the way

maybe if we stay where we are

and don't open our mouths

then we can really talk

really

maybe if while we are where we are

and mouths shut

we could try our bestnot tothink of eachother

not tothink "I love you"

maybe then

maybe while we arent thinking of eachother

we could think of someone else

maybe that would do the trick

what if while we think of others

we just grow old and shut our eyes

and rest forever

I think maybe that is the way

the way to really talk, you know

about all this fucking shit

maybe if we rest forever as our older selves

we could open our eyes as new someones

I could be you next time

you could be me

maybe then we could meet

maybe then we could really

talk

maybe then you could not trust me

and I could try to convince you I love you

and hate myself when I couldn't

maybe you could write your frustration

and self loathing in a poem I'll never read

I think then

I thinkthat's whenwe could reallytalk
