who knows where truth goes once it passes human lips

who knows where truth goes
once it passes human lips
the knowledge we hold in our hearts
the words that our thoughts form
so full of heat and blood and purpose
even as they make their way out
they have such a hopeful shape
but their sparks turn into steam
as they collide with the cold air
and mix with earth’s atmosphere

there’s so much that can be said
about what remains unspoken
but i’ll have to save it for silence
for the times we get to hold each other
and hide deep inside each others bones
our words become flesh and our body becomes night
as we weave ourselves into a pattern
that communicates everything that the world needs to know
an electric currency that courses through our veins
and lights the path towards the center of our heart

the one we share
on nights like these
when it’s too cold
to think about distances
or how close you can really get
while still being apart
