a night spent unalone


leave me to my silence
and I will leave you to your laugh
leave me to my darkness
and I will leave you to your past
or let the silence take you
and let me share your smile
while the darkness is around us
if only for awhile.

    Awww this is a lovely poem ~ it seems you to can capture alot in just a few sentences too! =) I love the mention of 'silence' and 'darkness' ~ are you a fan of Sylvia Plath?
