Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 3

I am glad to be able to have caught up enough to sneak this post in today.  I have missed doing these FFFs.  This week we go back to January 3rd, 2017  with a post that was originally here.

 

Silence

When the silence hits

It cuts to the bone.

 

There are no more angry words

No more tears

No more smiles

No more laughter

No more moments of tenderness

 

…just utter silence

Stillness

Solitude

Emptiness

Loneliness

 

Since you’ve been

Gone.

In Answer To Your Silence

I give and give, and give some more

And you have turned your back on my door

I have done all I can because I care

But you don’t even notice when I am not there

I tried to give you space to grow

But the truth I have come to know

Was that your kindness was always finite

And the way you treat me now is not right

So I will no longer try to fit in

To the small space you put me within

If you want me you know where I am

No longer will I cry while you don’t give a damn

Silent Questions

The awkward silence that follows
My sincere I love you…
The awkward silence eats me alive
Did I do something wrong…
The awkward silence slowly chokes me
Should I have never said a word…
The awkward silence fills me with anxiety
It has to be my fault…
The awkward silence forces me to think
You never loved me to begin with….
