your words won't come when

i want them to,

when i beg them to.

i missed you but

the highways are as strong as oceans,

as mountains, and i'd attempt to cross them

barefoot

but i'm not sure it'd be

worth

it.

and i'm still missing you

but, you say, but

somehow the silence is stronger

the closer you get

and you shush me when i speak.

i missed you.

silence.

but

silence.
