Higher than the Rooftop : Your Silence...

Felt the butterflies in my stomach as I entered in the area. I was expecting he was already there as usual. I looked around hoping (I’m crazy to admit it) I could find him at one corner there. Felt the rush feelings subside realizing I would be solo for the night. Though I brought my journal, I wasn’t in the mood to write.


It was a little after eight and I could feel the wind chills me reminding the Holidays are coming. I was standing there at my spot ready to look up above the heavens, but decided to look at my back one more time to see if he comes…


Darn it! Why is this happening to me…I sighed. Why would I care about his absence…would it be different if he was present?


I closed my eyes saying my if…OK if I look up the sky and see my Mickey before any other stars, then he’d come. I told my self.


I opened my eyes gazing exactly at my star, smiling. Oh gosh! This is madly insane! Am I wishing now? Told myself.


“Hey, what were you doing eyes closed?” Somebody suddenly spoke.

I almost throttled to say a word. “Wishing.” I blurted out.

“Can I know what you wished for?” He teasingly asked.

“Nah. Um if I did, it won’t come true.” I replied.


Suddenly he was there like a vampire LOL I mean, I wonder how I never noticed he was there already. Suddenly, the music played again…Suddenly, I forgot about the stars and the moon…


Tonight was strange though. We didn’t talk that much. We just sat there, inches away from each other…watching the view…breathing the sweet air under the moonlight…


His silence was bothering me…I was staring at the moon but not really…because I was watching him from the corner of my eye.


“Say something.” He finally said.

“Huh?” I asked wondering.

“Sing me a song, tell me something, anything…entertain me.” He said smiling.

“Owkay…


I sit in your silence, scared
Waiting patiently for recognition


For a word
For a breath
For a touch


But I am raw


Because I watch your hands instead of writing
And listen to your breath instead of breathing


It’s strange,
How close to you I feel
And the need I have...
To help you,
To make you smile...


And yet I’m still sitting here,
Waiting,
For you to let me in.



“Beautiful…What’s that?” He asked.

Your Silence…one of my favorite poem.” I muttered.

“Listen, I have to leave now. Hope you have a fantastic night still…” I continued vaguely.

“Why leave so soon honey?” He asked with a serious tone.

“I hate to go…but I have to. So, see you around?”

“Can’t stay any longer though. Take care, see you…” He mumbled.



And so I am here, walking away from my rooftop…I hate to go but I know I can’t stay either. I can’t stay having these feelings inside me…feelings that unexpectedly get stronger. I don’t quite know what’s this, but sooner or later I’ll know…


I still can’t believe I’ve spoken every word from that poem to him. Sometimes I’m just so frank and I hate it.


So I left him there with his silence…

I wonder what he’s thinking about right now…

I still bite my lips for that little show…

I wonder what he feels about that…

Wonder if he’s higher than the rooftop…




***"Your Silence" a poem from Francine Pascal's SYSVH

I just so love it that I know it by line LOL

that is very touching, reading these lines I felt her isolation, what was wrong with the guy, why could he not speak, why did she have to 'entertain' him?

All that she had stored up seemed wasted

@Poet L

Yeah I’ll join you when you get there, don’t forget to tell me what poem it is. any nickname will do :p the heights amazing! told you it’s more than dizziness, you could be higher than you think LOL

@Jess

@Dark Heart

Hehe yeah these two must go somewhere else..

Thank you DH :)

@Alice Frances

Hi! Touching..i love hearing that :)

There was nothing wrong with the guy. Maybe you can rewind..LOL

‘entertain’ that was just a word inside a statement, better read between the lines ;p

Thanks Alice :)

"I was staring at the moon but not really…because I was watching him from the corner of my eye." Mesmerizing! This one is my fave so far. Silence is a really good poem, and it fit perfectly. "Because I watch your hands instead of writing

And listen to your breath instead of breathing" I love that line. I was gonna ask if you wrote it but I see its by Francine Pascal. Is she a famous writer/poet?


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

and I have so felt that way before. sitting in his silence, waiting for him to let me in, wanting to be close to him, feel him, make him smile and help him, but just sitting there. waiting, in silence. his and mine.

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you... Author

She wrote the novel Sweet Valley High and the poem was from the Senior Year spinoff. Read the sets back in high school.

Ah yah that feeling..I'm glad you loved this Nikki. Thanks so much. You're awesome! XO
