Sorry for not saying hello

You see, I've forgotten how to breathe.

When you smiled and walked past

I swear you looked at me.

No one has done that

In quite so many years.

I have lost that life

That love

That heart

That smile

That gift of bringing light.

But though you said not a word

My ears dance with whispers,

That tell me of you.

Just a person are you

Quite like lost little me,

Only different in the decision to be.

Falling through the cracks

Is my forced specialty.

But just a word of your melody

And resurrection is me.

Our work together shall be life,

For there are no artists such as us,

The still painting of two artists in the sea.
