Looking up words in a dictionary
Trying to express myself to you
Without sounding contrary
The things I have to do.

Communication is not in your vocabulary
You sit and stare into space
Waiting for the moment I finally shut up
Wanting so badly to put me in my place

What is holding you back?
Are you scared I might explode?
The silence is deadly
And to me is getting really old.

Is there something so complex you cannot say?
Or am I giving you too much credit
Whatever it is
Someday you are going to regret it.

Silence leaves room for assumptions
Assumptions leave room for destruction
Destruction is sometimes irreversible
Making it hard for me to function.

Silence is deadly for some.
Thank you for the comment!!! Unfortunately, I am too curious of a person to enjoy what I should about silence. I like for everything to be out on table, it gives me direction.

Silence is a beautiful thing, me myself, I envy silence, not because I cannot adhere to its standards, but that silence has many levels. In silence it seems that innaction is appreciated yet...silence itself is hard virtue to hold.

(by the by, there is going to be an poem of mine inspired by this, check it)
