Silence - Poem by Joseph Tanner
Silence speaks volumes,
Cold air feels the space that’s between us.
When we speak nothing is resolved,
I’m sorry for the air that I breathe,
We have a combined pain,
We’ve spent so much time together,
Yet we still don’t know how to share.
You say you could read me,
There isn’t enough pages in this world to write how I feel.
You show no emotion,
Who knew that silence could speak for us?
Slowly decaying everything we had,
Too scared to break the silence that could free us.
