about

In high school, I got a small peek into the deaf world when I learned ASL for our theatre production Children of a Lesser God. In this song I try to express the feeling I got about it.

“Hand Shadows”

© 2011 Elyse Nichole Miller

We whisper in crimson darkness
Lay lonesome in lover's lane
Tips touching on star-bright blankets
Wishing a name

We simmer in scarlet language
Fuel fiery fingertips
Palms pressed into honest arrows
Awaiting a kiss

Kill all the odds
This art is ours
Kill all the odds
This are is ours
Ours

Hand shadows, hand shadows
Hand shadows

Hand shadows, hand shadows
Hand shadows

We listen with our eyes
Hear heartbeats in hand
Won't you come closer to touch us
And give us a name?
Won't you come closer to touch us
And tell us your name?

With hand shadows, hand shadows
Hand shadows

Just hand shadows, hand shadows
Hand shadows
