Everynight

he mouths  
I love you
into the darkness

there is no sound
there is no breath
even

there is only the
silent
movement of his bitten lips
there is only the
voiceless
cry of his noiseless prayer

I love you
everynight
I love you

he calls the dream that
can not does not will not
answer

and yet
she hears
                 Yes
she hears

Everynight
she hears
