SILENT TREATMENT
(5/3/19)


no replies

no responses
whatsoever

that's
OK

I like
to minimize
all human
contact

but I've
read enough
books

seen enough
movies

to realize
that there's
some expected
repartee

so
I do try
to do
my part

however
half heartedly

making
the best attempts
within my
limited capabilities
to remain
social

to maintain
contact

but please
know

that when
I see no
messages

no texts

no emails
waiting
for me

my initial
reaction
is always
one
of relief

never
of concern

your silence
is a comfort
to me

thank
you
