all i want / by Megan Hollingsworth

 

what is this love

that leaves everything unspoken, that is

there are no words to speak

when the house is on fire

and lovers are scattered

 

it is something

and if there are moments i recall

surely you were there

there and real

within reach

 

all i want

is you within reach

to know how no words to speak 

tastes on the forest floor

as ashes dance
