Her Silence

Written by: Girish Gokul

Why is it that silence becomes too tough to bear..?
As if holding you in a death vice.
I never really stayed with you though I intended to,
I lie wrapped in my world, my time.
I need a thimble full of happiness...
I have lost my peace and the saddest thing is-
I know where to find it...
 Its in your eyes that I search for the answers,
Speak please,Break your silence,
 I admit my defeat.

She read my mind
Silently she nodded...smiled.
She knew and she understood,
My heart was mended,
I felt good.
