The Silent Divorce - Poem by Suraj Samtani

Yes. I do confess.

I do want to talk to you.

& I do want to increase our interaction.



But I also know that this relationship must be mutual.

Never can any force themselves on the other.



So now it seems like

You're restricting me.

Giving me hints, to refrain from

going any futher.



I appreciate your gesture.

For a direct remark would surely hurt more.

I surely understand, &

your wish is my command.



Good luck on our roads apart...

and on a brand new start!
