Comfortable Silence

When did our talking past midnight
turn into a comfortable silence,
where we finish each other’s sentences,
and answer questions before they are asked?

Even our faces have started to look the same
our steps have synchronized
and our hearts beat as one.

Some say we should seek another,
to awaken passion and stimulate the brain,
because what we have is really boredom…
laziness substituting for contentment.

When I see those who’ve tossed out the old
they’ve lost the luxury of familiarity
and have to prove themselves all over again
jealousy and doubt rack their days.

While we have the security
of knowing each other well
we're still in love...
now more than ever.
