when words fail


inspired by shaye chesney

Where words fail, 
Music speaks
But the music is your knife
And it cuts through the words that fail
Writing it, 
It feels awkward
But make it loud, 
And make it long; 
A never ending 
song that sings about love
Twisted as a 
Lie that sheds in the dark
Beautiful as the life
We know.
Though the truth does mingle
Down below, 
Hidden from light
It'll never show unless you unveil it
