I can’t write for you…

You understand, don’t you?

The silence is deafening, the tension so high.  I’m drinking tea, looking at each passing face from this salmon painted chair.  Yet all I see are images with no story.  Blurred faces vanishing into the next scene.

I would welcome the noise if I could hear it.  You told me how you needed me to say something.  You beamed me your frustrated longing – yet all I can do is sit here, fractured, drumming my chipped nails against this perfect porcelain plate.

Perhaps you will vanish now.  Annoyed.  Frustrated.

And I will be left sipping this tea, inhaling its fragrance. 

Welcoming a comfort that you could never offer.
