the silent treatment

28 May

i became frightened as i saw you recede

into some kind of inner darkness

avoiding my gaze

walking right past me without a word

like a ghost from a bad dream

why the silent treatment?

you must know that i love you

and there is no place where you can hide

from that

i need to see your smile, hear your laugh

i need to have the real you beside me

not some shabby copy which speaks in single words

and falls apart after a few days
