Living in silence

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?

What’s wrong? Tell me.

Your silent treatment is deafening.

I have no words.

We never talk any more.

  1. Says so much …I like to read you poem out loud …I think you get a different perspective then and thanks you have reminded me to get back to writing poetry again .
