asides: silence so loud

you don’t ask
and I don’t tell
and we wonder why
tongues wag.

your gaze meets mine
over their heads
and we smile,

i wait for you
to look my way
oblivious to the sparks
that fly, when you do.

like when you speak to me
with your eyes
and i answer,

star-gazers both, sit together
wait for shooting stars
forget our wish breathes beside us
oh, such fools we are.

half of me
lives without half of you
and we still wonder
why we’re leading half-lives!
