When I Say Nothing

Night calls me in like a sleep

Wavering in blissful unawareness

Cowering for the corner

Like a kitten lost in the dark.

Shells found on the beach were nothing

But dust once you picked them up.

Laying in the middle of the road

He waited for a car to come

It was a terrible place to fall asleep.


He was teaching her to love

But mostly trust

A man.

She was teaching him that people can love

With no regard

For financial security.

Now they are trying to touch

Trying to find themselves

Within one another.


When I say nothing

You fill in the blanks

As if you were in my head

And you have never


Been in any part of me.
