Silence

I love you.

I miss you.

Why can't I say it?

I need you.

I want you,

and silent I sit.

I butcher

myself for

not speaking before.

I think of

you often

and I miss you more.

Tears stain my

happy face.

I'm depressed for now.

How to cure

my sadness,

I never know how.

I wish I'd

said something

instead of been quiet.

Many a

chance I missed.

I raised no riot.

I love you.

I miss you.

Why can't I say it?

I need you.

I want you,

and silent I sit.
