The Goodnight Kiss
Don't say goodnight, and walk away without that kiss that you owe me.
Don't close your eyes, and say you don't want me. I wish that you'd want me now.
You know that I promised I'd always have an ear for you to lend.
But now your syllables are phrases I don't understand.
Calling out in desperation.
Fighting off this suffocation.
Screaming out loud.
Wanting so bad to be heard.
When the days ends and you're cold from standing out alone.
The only voice of recognition is your own.
Crying out in desperation.
Begging to be heard.
But only you can hear your words.
