Silence

by austere seeker

You’re upset... did I say or do something wrong, your tone, well, text really, sounds different, stark stiff formal held back, something the matter? Something I said, or did, or didn’t, you know I’ve been having health, work issues... not that you asked, like a switch off? Why do I sense that something somewhere is wrong... you’ve just called me by my name, not that usual term of endearment! Something’s crawling, tingling on my skin. Dammit, say something! You think I won’t find out who she is, your new prettina-muse?

Oh yes. Silence speaks louder than words. The frustration here is well described. "Dammit, say something!"

Ack, who would furrow Austy brow in such a way? Never you mind them, you have plenty of love here.

Ankush said...

Well, the enjoyment here for the poetic use of words. After having gone through some of your works, it seems as if you have a heavy bend towards poetry, and tend to write about snapshots of life.

austere said...

Yes, that's true- snapshots of life, stuff that hits you. Which is possibly why I can't do too many sixes.
