Silence is Not Always Golden

What did you just say?

Your voice has drifted away

And became a distant din in my ear.

Why do you prattle

On and on about things

That are of no interest to me?

By now you should know

There are few things we have in common

And that makes it hard to find a suitable conversation.

So, we sit in silence;

You lost in the television,

And me with my written words.

Until the day I say enough

And ask you to leave this place,

Only then will I find peace and maybe myself.
