Its Dark In Here

its dark in here
but i can hear the sound of your heavy breath
and i wonder
tilting my head, facing the watered window
are you crying?

its dark in here
and the sound of your sob gets clearer
and the picture in my head
of your face with tears 
weights like the whole world

its dark in here
and i want to cry with you

its dark in here
and i let you cry alone
and pretend that the sobs aren't there
buried by the indistinct sound of radio
and the sound of vehicles queuing their turn to go back to their garage

its dark in here
please dont think you are crying alone
i want to give you my arms
but i cant even bear the sound of your cry in the dark


how can i bear the touch of your trembling skin?
