On one of those days

When I couldn’t speak

I picked up the phone 

And called you

Accusations flew

And I realised

I was foolish

To think

I could put into words

All this


I gave up speaking

And told you

Not to speak, as well


It’s better sometimes

Not to speak

So that we can hear each other
