The Quiet Ones


Like a quiet song
which builds into some anthem
so I wish to rise now

From the comfort of the carpet
to the burning focus of the lectern
so much I need to say

You and I, we've always been
the quiet ones
quietly turning inside
You and I, we've always known
we were the quiet ones
quietly teeming inside

Yet I must move from this position
briefly break from our synchronicity
to speak this love in bold

I want to love you loudly
as thunderous as it courses through us
so wild and warm

You and I, we've always been 
the quiet ones
quietly tumultuous inside

And yet, today I've found my voice
it is strong and clear and true
I'll put it to best use
proposing a future for us two...

can relate to this quite a lot, it perhaps a bit long for my tastes but the first half of the poem (taking nothing away from the rest) is magical. lovely stuff m8
