Soul Talk

I used to think I had to talk talk talk

about every. little. thing.

in order to have a healthy, connected relationship

in order to make things legit,

to keep it real.

Now it seems to be a matter of deciding

which conversations to have

and which ones to let float in the spaces between us,

making their way into a glance

a piece of runaway light landing on your hair

my fingers moving across the strings

yours across my skin

a night spent sleeping next to your body

and all the other ways truth has of revealing itself.
