I’d take a fist over silence

At least then I could explain the scar

The one you left when you walked away

Leaving me breathless

Leaving me alone

I know you feel the same

Would take the pain

Over the absence of touch

We are both broken

But I know

My broken pieces match yours

Where I falter, you stand strong

Where you break, I am unyeilding

So we’ll play this game a little longer

Until one day we accept

We are only whole
