Your silence speaks

07 Dec

Your silence speaks
It speaks so loud I’ve had to stop up my ears
From hearing the screeching sound of  friendship’s brake
A friendship we once shared, a friendship we once knew.

Your silence speaks
It whispers so loudly that it tickles my ear
I wonder how much louder the din can get.
I wonder now and I wonder again of a friendship lost, lost to time.

Your silence speaks
Howling like the wind in a harmattan eve
Blowing over stalks and bending them over
Reminding me of how the test of friendship bent you, broke you.

Your silence speaks
And I weep
I weep for what could have been
I weep for your silence
