THROUGH SOUND, THROUGH TOUCH, THROUGH LOVE♥
If only we could communicate through sound, not through words. If only no one could understand one another, relying on only the laughter, the shouts, the cries of everyone else. Through the chimes of the bells in the summer morning, through the sorrow of the violin’s tone, through the lonely howling of the wolf at dusk, all followed by the thick silence that accompanies the end of everything beautiful. The agonizing silence rips through me like nothing I’ve felt before.
Speech is so useless, conveying false feelings, creating false hopes. Words are the source of so much of society’s pains and struggles; they break everything lovely in this world.
I want to forget everything you told me. I want to wash away how uncertain you made me. How scared I was of losing you. How I lost you anyway. I don’t want to know how your hands feel or what makes you smile. I don’t want to see you in photos, familiar like a dream I had once or a book I never finished. I don’t want to speak about you in snippets or think about how I behaved. Or know that I still think about it. Or know that you’re not just a lamp or a blade of grass, indistinguishable from the rest.
