Oh how I wanted to talk to you if I could;
To say and hear the saccharine words:
“I love you, I love you too”.
But that’d be inefficient as you won’t hear me at all
For I lost my voice like Ariel if you can still recall.
I thought I can rest well after bidding you the other night adieu.
But nostalgia and desire kept me awake through and through.
How I longed to hear your voice
As I writhe underneath these sheets thinking of you.
For the lilt of your voice seductively lulls me into sleep
And forcefully drives me to discover an intense awakening, yearning;
Like a lullaby that’s making me lucid,
Your modulated voice is so hypnotic!
I’m glad you still notice my existence
Despite my current condition
And wasn’t seduced by the sound
Of countless sirens that craved your attention.
In the end, my day will never be complete
Without hearing your spellbinding melodies and stories.
Next time, will you sing for me?
Will you tell me about your dream?
Please hear my soul’s unvoiced yearning.
