End This Silence - Poem by Orlando Belo
I would like to think that you could
give me some kind of explanation.
To why you are behaving this way
by creating this hurtful situation.
Is it because I have done something wrong
or hurt you in some kind of way?
Or is because you just don't love me anymore
and you are troubled by what to say?
Has the fire gone out in our relationship?
Has the flame been extinguished by the years?
You have a hard, coldness, in your expressions,
but I have never seen any sadness or tears.
Whatever is weighing heavy on your mind,
it would be far better that you let it free.
We cannot possibly go on like this indefinitely,
you are making both of us unhappy.
I am not a mind reader and I'm feeling at a loss,
helpless, confused, and frustrated.
Now is the time to explain your feelings,
tell me the truth and be liberated.
If you cannot bring yourself to tell me,
I will have to assume the worse,
and as such I will cut my cloth accordingly,
in response to your total lack of words.
I really do not like taking this kind of action,
but you leave me very little choice.
A division of assets is the next step forward,
so please end this silence with your voice.
