in silence we danced

I took your hand as you
led me to the center of the storm
wreaking havoc in your core

we let them watch us dancing
in the deep well once abandoned
‘fore they found love
and started believing in our story

only you know how I longed
for this high wind to tell me
that no matter the color
of the sky, you’d always miss
the shade of my eyes

and then when the music stopped,
you held me close and hummed
our tune so low in my ear,
I was entranced and lost
in our silence
