Love in Translation

Sometimes hearts can speak the same language,

only in different tongues.

A little joke here, a wisecrack there,

all to say what can’t be said

explicitly.

Can it be heard?

Sometimes, sometimes not.

Sometimes it all becomes lost in translation

from a late night,

or a bad day,

or an absolute fear to truly hear

what they have to say.

But the ones who stay

learn to love the beauty in those languages.

The ones who stay know how

to coexist.
