Poem


What are we saying

In the silences between us?

Are there unspoken words?

Nothing at all?

And emptiness fills me up

Everytime

The silence stretches

On

And

On

And

On

Building my doubt

Fueling fears I dare not voice

What would you say

If you knew?

Maybe you'd have no real words

To say

Merely things you want me to hear

Maybe you'd speak honesty

And the silence would run

On

And

On

And

On

Until you find words again.
