In Between

Words can only say so much.
Meaning lies not only in the syllables,
But also in the silences.
The pauses and the glances.
In the air in between us.

Quit relying on language to convey
The feelings that have no words.
The ambient noises,
The uneven hush of your breathing.
The faint whisper of leaves.
All of it combined means more
Than you will ever say.
