Teaser:

Silence

Years ago when I felt
the aura of aloneness
that surrounded you, wrapped round you,
the aloofness that defined
everything about you in terms of distances, and
the absence that flowed from your eyes,
I knew
it would all stab me one day.

Now, once again,
the deepening silence that’s settling on you
threatens to rip open
the wounds we thought had healed…
the nerves will not be able to take it…
