Pregnant Silence

The two enjoy
The company
The togetherness
Long periods of silence
“You hardly talk
How do you connect?”
People wonder
We simply smile
“It’s a silent pact”
The silence meaningful
My mind races backwards
His extra marital affair
Suddenly comes up on me
Worse, the huge thud
The other woman ‘Pregnant’
Long phases of silence follow
While we drift apart
For him
His new love interest
For me 
Quiet anger, disappointment, sorrow
And the rest
And it remained so
Till he entered
Into my life’s mess
Gentle, almost faultless
Now again silence
‘Pregnant silence’
Silence meaningful
The strings of my heart pulled
Silence denoting
Love, adoration, respect- everything
Oh! This wonderful being together
In silent communion
Not as two separate entities
But as one
