Silence

The silence between you and I

cuts the air from my lungs

airways blocked by cinders and fallen debris

from the trainwreck that we were

What was a harmonious melody

only sour notes left

a distant sound barely audible

perhaps a sigh a gentle breeze

or a whisper from a dying ember.

Tonight…

like a metronome, time is passing by

waiting by the phone for a significant ring

from an important person…

that may or may not call at all

my heart is beating fast, my spirit is down

clouds are heavy carrying threats of rain

I will walk away after tonight, leaving this

unfortunate night

this heart of mine can’t bear anymore pain

and I know you don’t care

anymore…
