In your silence I died a million deaths.
So many questions and fears came rushing to my mind!
Did I do too little.. or too much,
Did I say too little… or too much,
Did I share too little… or too much,
Is it because I didn’t hold your hand,
even though I wanted to…
Only because I was afraid.. I’m only human, you know!
Your silence tells me, that there’s so much more to know.
Silence is the distance, between me and you,
And it thrills and kills.
And I see that I’m only projecting negativities on your silence..
That is the gift it brings along,
Because only through darkness can we appreciate light.
I accept that right now I am not the one who comforts you
May be silence comforts you more!
It is your journey, and you want to travel alone, not with me
For me, silence is The Other in your life…
But I have seen the beauty in you,
And the beauty of silence…
I like it, that our love does not need to waste words,
Though I have seen the beauty of words too…
And I hope, someday soon, we can lie in each other’s arms,
and let love speak a word or two!
