Have you ever been in a situation where you were sitting so close to the person you love but yet felt so far. Where the silence was so intense your soul yearned for a simple sound for assurance. Well take a read :)


Waterfalls of emotions, rushing into destruction
Prolonged feelings of love and ire eruptions
Disoriented impassion flows through the air without restraint
Without gravity
Fixed my lips to force sound but I can’t
His cell phone breaks the silence, the loud noise of his dying battery
Skin on skin, sitting so close yet feeling so far
My heart reaches for yours, yours for mines but they never seem to bond
Secrets from the past presents the truth for the present
So many thoughts are running through my mind, still my lips have not to depart yet
My eyes closes slowly, my heart drops landing right beneath my feet
My mind is racing, thoughts are flying, I begin to realize that this is were the ending of us meets
It feels as if my ears are going to explode
I try to protect them but right through my fingers the loudness pours
My silent cries, my fainted screams
My palms are sweating. My heart is racing. My tears are beginning to fill.
I glance at his beautiful brown eyes, and the thoughts of his secrets forces them to spill.
Not ONE word was said as we sat next to one another. Sound of his breath is all I hear
Space? Didn’t exist between us there was no room for it there
All seats were filled, BUT one will be empty as I watch him leave the room.
Never knew Silence could be so LOUD, especially when It’s talking to you.
