Will you be there when I arrive?
Will you be able to set the noise aside?
Will you listen behind and underneath my words?
Will you give your whole being to what I am telling you?
Will you notice what I don’t say?
Will you stay during the silences?
Will I unlock my voice this time to say
what I have not yet said to myself?
Holding my breath.
I wait for you to
