Pregnant Silence

Written by: norah natty maturure

So many things I have to say to you
Yet your absence robs me of your attention
Yet fuels the word train of my emotions

So many things I want to say to you
Yet my tongue refuses to obey my mind
Yet my body refuses to cooperate and call

So many seconds of silence hang between us
That need to be filled by conversation
That need to be released from curious expectation

So many things I have to explain
To help you understand me and my actions
To release me from this invisible yet strong bond to you

So many things should have been that are not
So many words treasured and captured
So many moments and gestures remembered
So many incomplete conversations
So many unfulfilled fantasies
Something is incomplete that should not be
Someday the circle shall come full
