Strangers

You are someone who prefers warm red wine

over the chill factor and sparkling glasses.

Month after month, the writings

on the tips of elbows hold relevance,

the lines of perfect songs in my head

now make use of my tongue, that

epiphany to help

read between the lines.

Don't worry,

those conversations won't make

a life for themselves,

quietly "what if's" they will become

but what if we stopped silencing our thoughts?
