Dysfunctional Talk II

Written by: Patrizia Cohen

Suddenly you change:
Run away from us
Close your mind pensive
You are here but far from here.

Darkness surrounds me
Emptiness in your eyes
Silent looks talk to me
Voiceless words slip away

What is it?
Nothing
You OK?
Yes

What is it?
You should know
No, I don’t
You don’t care.

My eyes stop crying
My heart stops suffering
My mouth stops talking
My mind stops thinking.

Suddenly we change:
I feel your anger
You feel my solitude
We feel our unity.
