A shiver went through me the first time I heard your voice
It was the kind of shiver that makes you warm afterwards
It was pleasant and unexpected
just like the melodies you created when you spoke
I expected the sound of a flower blooming when I first saw you
but instead, I got something stronger and braver
like a tornado, it shattered my expectations and left me speechless
anxiety filled me because I felt like my voice wasn't worthy of yours
as if whatever created it wanted it to be the only melody ever played
and thus silence embraced me
because that had become my wish as well
