interested in noise

there are no words left in my lungs
no words to teach or shout
no words to defend myself
i exhaled them one by one
i used them up, in my younger days
before i cared to learn from others
when i was more interested in noise
than silence

but i have infinite words in my hands
and hands are as much for loving
as they are for learning

so i will learn you
and love you
with these hands of mine

the silence outside there is silence outside my bedroom window
