Knot

Tonight, the silence is interrupted,
your screams are hardly faint...
Tonight, you've forgotten about my presence
as you carry on without compassion.
Tonight, I hear you struggle to make a decision
all without one discernible word spoken.
Tonight, you seek the silence that comes in the end
but your hesitation only prolongs the suffering.
Tonight, time is at a standstill
as not one breath is passed through our lungs.
Tonight, I say goodbye
without a word or a tear.
Tonight, I tie the knot for you
because you lack true strength.
Tonight, I understand the value of tomorrow
as tomorrow never arrives.
