Silent Conformity (Xena)

by: -sHaYcH

'Green fire in the darkness
Reaching out to me
Green fire in the night
Its all I can see'

The words written on my heart
whisper in my mind as
I look out across the fire.

Will you look back at me
this night?
Or will my silent cry go
Once more?

Some warrior I am that
I cannot engage this enemy.
Some woman I am that
I cannot give these words to thee.
Oh, how I wish that you could
just take them away from me.

In desperation I return
to the ritual of silence.
I set my 'stone to steel as
you set your quill to parchement,
safe in our silent conformity.
