Inevitable Silence - Poem by Marie Cris Ponsaran

do you fear the inevitable silence
that comes and goes without warning
do you fear the irksome pauses
that we sometimes have when we talk
it's like showing us we're running out of stories
or perhaps we're slowly reaching the apex of interest
do you fear these meddlesome thoughts
that pass by quickly through our minds
it's like we're holding on to something fragile
when perhaps it's already lost
