Walls Talk

These are the times when the walls talk
The bricks sneer and the tile floor scoffs at you
Disapproving, mocking, judging
It’s a quiet conversation 
You can’t quite grasp the words
Muttered to your ears only

Yes, the others are excluded 
From this one-sided discussion
So they don’t understand
When you can’t hear them
And when you stare blankly at the wall
Because they aren’t aware
That those walls are tormenting you

White Noise

A heavy presence in the back of my mind
Nagging, needy, relentless
A constant white noise 
That buzzes without regard for time of day
A reminder that the bubble has burst
Leaving me gasping for a painful breath

The past is unforgiving, 
Our future seems out of reach
The weight of our mistakes 
Too great to bear alone
And we both know 
we can’t do it together like we used to
