WORDS ON A SCREEN


Pale streamers
of light
made dingy
by the cold
struggle
through the
clouds outside
my window

And I sit
at the keys
silently
keenly
watching
and waiting
for word
from you

just a word,
that's all

I feel
so hungry
devoid
and fidget
as my insides
gnaw away
at my
psyche

Brain numb
fingers icy
poised and
at the ready
wanting
nothing more
than for you to
speak to me

just a word,
that's all
 
You said
silence is
but a friend
I guess
you meant it
but all I can
do is
want you
here

And I know
that I
shouldn't
yes, I know
that you're
hiding
from what
we both need

just a word,
that's all

But your
silence speaks
volumes
and I guess
I should
be happy
in this
certainty

You gave
me your
soul, your
deep things
your trust
your true
self through
and through

Say the word…
I'll  fall
