prefer the silence

I wanted us to be lovers

but couldn’t cross the divide

it was all I could do

to push you away

go run & hide

& none of this was badness

only sadness wrapped in frustration

I did not know

how to reach out to you

& you had no words to say

help me cross the road

nights I could not sleep

wanting to be close to you

instead we slipped into silence

the safe places inside

& I wonder now I reached out

tried to try again

would you prefer the silence

leave me on my own again
