You ask a question and wait to hear the reply

You hear nothing but silence and wonder why

You make a statement, expecting a comment

You’re ignored, not a grunt or a nod is lent

 

Why does silence speak volumes to some?

They imagine so much, while we are mum

Some consider our silence is equated to guilt

Thinking we need time for excuses to be built

 

Does silence mean the question wasn’t heard?

Or the answer required some thoughtful words

Do we seem stupid when we take time to think?

Or are we stupider when we answer in a blink?

 

Does the offer of silence mean we disagree?

Should we flash our opinions on a marquee?

Pensive and quiet doesn’t always mean sad

Nor does it mean that we are angry and mad

 

I enjoy the serene comfort of being quiet

Putting my words and sentences on a diet

Let my words tell my story and make sense

Do not judge me by omission or pretense
