things left unsaid


Artistic version of the poem 'things left unsaid', transcription below

transcription:


if only you could

bottle up happiness

and save it for later date

i think we could both do with some of that now


the look on your face

the tang of the base

our song said moonlight

but it felt more like we were

dancing in the sunlight


your sunlight

you’re sunlight

you are sunlight


we went so quickly from

strangers to friends

friends to strangers


when did life get so unfair?

it seems that now

i’m picking up where you left off

only

with less laughter

and more silence


we are too young to be this tired


this place still smells like you

haunted

and i am still thinking of you

how someone can be so

full of dark

and yet so full of


light
