Hallowed Ground

I don’t look deeply into your eyes
With the passion of a silver screen
To tell you how much I love you
Not because I’m dying to hear
How much you love me too

Not because we’re going to act it out
Again and again
Not because we’re going to get paid
Until the end of a script
Or till the royalties run out –

We use words that are never spoken
And live them out every day
And night
For the silence of words
Is hallowed ground
Between two souls
