Love Poem: The Silent Treatment

This is a poem about when you're dating someone - you think everything's going along fine, and you've developed feelings for this person... And all of a sudden they go missing - giving you the 'silent treatment'...  Unfortunately it's not an uncommon dating situation to be in, but it's one of the most frustrating!

Left with no reply from you

My friend, the lover

I once knew

No response, no phone call

You make my world

You've made me small

Time and distance fills your space

You've disappeared

Without a trace

Even the truth would serve me better

With a note, a line

One letter

Again great emotional writing, there is a silent tone of anger soaked in this piece, excellent again.
