Of love’s silence

Did you call?
I did not hear you speak a word,
And yet,
I thought you did articulate.

We fought, and what not;
And fell so silent,
I looked at you, you looked away,
But I am sure, I heard you say,
Does silence speak?
It has its way.

I gazed into your eyes,
And tried to find,
That little thing,
Which made me feel,
You spoke a lot,
Yet said nothing.

Fights are eternal,
And fleeting peace;
Many say, love’s just a way,
For dopamines to have their say.

It does not speak, and neither do you,
Are you love, hormones or simply dumb?
And blind too.

You do not see, what I perceive,
Intangible, yet palpable.
Silence has its way, and so does love,
It doesn’t matter, what you do not say.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
