Living in silence

Posted by

black and white ivy-covered window

We sit in comfortable silence,
A conversation without words,
Conveying more in a language of our own,
Passing meanings through
A touch,
A smile,
A laugh,
A blush,
A nudge,
A wink.

What is that sigh?
That look?
Anger?
Discontent?
Annoyance?

What’s wrong? Tell me.

Your silent treatment is deafening.

I have no words.

We never talk any more.
