She said, “It was you
All those nights awake in bed
While nightgowned thoughts ran through my head.
Warm hearts,
Cold hands,
Watching silver stars from distant lands.
You spoke,
I heard,
But you never said a single word.”

He said, “That’s not true
Fingers crossed, tongue let loose,
My inner monologue was all about you.
Your heart,
My chest,
A rhythmic beat, so be my guest.
I’ll hear
You speak.”

(Conversational hide & seek.)

    Very nice. My favorite line was “watching silver stars from different lands”.
