The Silence

I never had to tell you,
That I was feeling low;
You always knew how,
To make me glow.


I never had to ask you,
“How was your day?”
I always just knew,
Even before you say. 


We never really needed words,
To understand our hearts.
We could read the silence,
Like it’s our secret art. 


But now there’s a distance,
And I can’t see your face.
I don’t know how you feel,
Or if you’re skipping meals. 


Now we keep asking,
Every single little thing.
Yet, there’s something missing,
Like we’ve lost our zing!


Oh, darling, I miss it,
Not talking to you,
I wanna share the silence,
The way we always did.

    Beautiful poem of distance and love. This stanza struck me more than the rest:

    “We never really needed words,
    To understand our hearts.
    We could read the silence,
    Like it’s our secret art.”

    Great work, Shreya!
