Poem: Uncomfortable Silence

Updated on December 23, 2010



I am currently going thru a difficult season in my marriage. My wife and I have been at odds for years and things appear to have come to a catharsis. I am hoping this season will pass, but you never know. I am not a good oral communicator which causes a lot of problems in my marriage. Sadly I find the only way I can truly express myself is thru my creative writings. I often feel an inability to feel in the 3-dimensional world, however within the multidimensional world of my mind I find an endless fountain of emotion. I don't know if the two ever shall meet, and if not then perhaps I am just not the marrying kind.

I wrote this on 12/23/2010 in freestyle. I typically regurgitate my emotions at once and don't re-edit. I don't know if anyone reads this but at least I find it self therapy.

Uncomfortable Silence

As you walk,

IT passes thru me.

I see your glance,

IT haunts me.

I breathe,

Take it in, thick, and tense.

Words left unspoken,

Lozenges of regret to choke on.

As on either side we stand now, no longer in dance,

A past full of questions,

Future moments uncertain,

As we lie here together opposed,

Writhing in uncomfortable silence.
