silent truth

I was trying too hard 
and you weren’t trying at all, 
yet I still wouldn’t listen. 
But it’s so hard to listen to silence 
even when it’s louder 
than the way you feel. 
Silence is too easy to ignore. 
If she wanted to be heard, 
she should speak up more. 
She’s really only noticeable in person 
or with someone you’ve just met. 
That’s when she chooses to fill a room 
with a thick uncomfortable fog 
that everyone tries to avoid and escape. 
So I’ve made the conclusion that 
silence makes no mistake when 
she chooses to be loud or when 
she chooses to be quiet. 
She’s hinting at a truth 
that’s hard to hear 
and often it’s a truth 
we already feel.
