Abstract answer to abstract question

Your silence
Forwards
Your argument;
Putting into words
The tender,
Weak and fragile
Sentiments;
Speak it does
Loud and clear;
Voicing
The unheard
Yet seen and felt;
No, you don’t hate me.
You lied to me the other day.
Words, you could fake;
Words, I could believe;
But
For this silence,
Potent,
Perfect,
And
Promising;
I know you were lying
And
I relish
Knowing this;
Am almost
Basking
In my
Secret serendipity;
Whatever it is
That you feel
Whatever it is
That we share
It borders
On what they call
The essence of living;
It gives me
Reason to

Live.
