Short Poem


His silence is shrill

And with every passing day, week, month…

Stings more than his words ever could

And with that I knew

I meant nothing to him

I never have

And never will

Sometimes silence can hurt just as much as any word. Poetically put into something very effective!

Great work, I've always felt like silence is much worse than hearing something bad, because your mind will wander a lot more with ambiguity
