We Never Needed Words

by, Cassandra

Hush now, baby dear.
Talk has become so cheap.
Better to say nothing at all,
when words come equipped
with wire bards.

I don't want to hurt you.
I don't want to hurt, either.
Just stop for a moment, and
listen, listen, listen.

The silence screams out
that if we'd just stop and
listen, listen, listen...
we'd see we never needed words.

Hush now, baby dear.
Actions speak louder, no?
My heart in your hand,
the tears in my eyes,
say all that you'll ever
need to know.

I don't want to hurt you.
I don't want to hurt, either.
Just stop for a moment, and
listen, listen, listen.

The silence whispers now,
that if we'd just stop and
listen, listen, listen...
we'd see we never needed words.

(better to say nothing at all,
when words come equipped
with wire bards.)
