Two Voices Together
I see you shiver,
Are you cold or are you crying?
Are you breathing or are you sighing?
Is the lump caught in your throat,
Holding a scream or stopping a note?
Feel free to share what you see as wrong,
If you don’t you could be down quite long.
Mountains, mountains, and mountains again,
Back logged buildings,
Rattling wild things,
Could you kiss me and smile,
I could do with a break for a while,
A shallow hideaway only a short mile away,
A parapet to place my head,
A pair of pets to ease my bed, and make me joyful still.
