Drifting Apart


We speak
We talk
We chat
We natter
We pause to draw breath

We gossip
We converse
We have a word
We pause to draw breath
In the pause there is silence

We chinwag
We have our say
We pause to draw breath
In the pause there is silence
Words are unspoken

We pontificate
We pause to draw breath
In the pause there is silence
Words are unspoken
What should be said is not

We pause to draw breath
In the pause there is silence
Words are unspoken
What should be said is not
Assumptions fill the silence

In the pause there is silence
Words are unspoken
What should be said is not
Assumptions fill the silence
Words undeclared

Words are unspoken
What should be said is not
Assumptions fill the silence
Words undeclared
Words unprofessed

What should be said is not
Assumptions fill the silence
Words undeclared
Words unprofessed
Words choked back in silence

Assumptions fill the silence
Words undeclared
Words unprofessed
Words choked back in silence
We drift

Words undeclared
Words unprofessed
Words choked back in silence
We drift
Apart
