Don’t tell me you don’t feel it too.

don’t tell me you don’t feel it too

because it’s there 

slipping beneath our midnight conversations 

and the mile of distance between our fingers when we walk side by side

the silence is so edible

as our lips quiver with questions waiting to be asked

do you love me?

what are we?

it’s there

don’t even lie to yourself that it isn’t

because i tried it once, it never worked.
