Love & Lust • If Silence Speaks I’ve Got A Lot To Say

Print

“We must accept what silence says in place of words. We must live with our words left unsaid.”

I refused to walk away without a goodbye.

Without telling you about the chaos in my mind. Without convincing you that my insanity went away when you did. But you never gave me the chance. You never let me speak. You took my obvious hints of loneliness for desperation. You felt the power. The ability to manipulate me. The ability to play puppet to my emotions.

Realistically, you were just a pawn piece.

You were pushing me closer and closer to lessons I needed to learn.

To the strength I always needed.

To the past, that stabilized my once unsteady steps. But, there was still so much I didn’t know. So much you hadn’t said. So much I hadn’t heard.

At the end of the day, we must accept what silence says in place of words. We must accept the way our thoughts often stay our own.

We must live with our words left unsaid.
