I wish that I could be honest with myself & you.
The urge to say what I’m feeling gets suppressed by you.
My consideration for your situation, no my need to sacrifice my wants for your immediate needs has to stop.

I can’t stop thinking about you, but can you say the same thing about me?
It seems as though you can go for days without thinking of me.
To have such a beautiful letdown at your hands is disheartening.
I’m used to being lonely, but it doesn’t mean that I want to be alone.
I’d call, but I know that you won’t answer or return the favor.

Silence is frightening & uneasy when you’re waiting for an answer.
Your silence differs from mine.
Your silence confirms what I already knew & my silence feels its way through towards a conclusion.

Some decisions are thought through while others are fully felt.
I want to speak with you about where we are.
Not where we are as in location, but ‘where’ as in relation.

One thought on “Suppress

    I’ve felt this before. I’ve made someone feel this way. Either way its not a good feeling. The silence I know too well. I enjoyed this. 🙂
