You'll miss me

Posted to Action Poetry




Silence sits between us
like an unwanted chaperone
you say you don't hear it
you tell me it's my own

when you left this morning
I asked if you'd be back
in undermining tones you said
I just can't answer that

Last night in the darkness
entwined upon my bed
you fell asleep contented
I laid awake in dread

Silence sits between us
like an unwanted chaperone
you tell me you don't hear it
but you'll miss me when I've gone
