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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
