Listeners

We’re a couple of listeners

Listening to each other

Not speaking much

 

I try to fill this silence

I thought it bothered you

It doesn’t bother me

I enjoy listening

 

I wish you would talk more

I like to listen

I’d like to know the rest of your story

But I don’t think it’s for me

 

I used to feel whole with you

Now this emptiness lingers

I used to always smile wide when I saw you

 

When I see you now

You complete my day but do not make it

I wish I felt like I did

 

Hugging you feels weird

It feels so foreign

So awkward

So out of place

 

We’re not two pieces of a puzzle

I had wished that we were

Maybe that would make me feel better

You returning these feelings

 

Or perhaps just a kiss

A kiss that tells my heart it’s okay to let go now

A kiss that’ll be the end to something with no beginning

A kiss to end this chapter of my story

A kiss that highlights what we could’ve been

 

In another life

In another world

In another story

 

This poem is about: 
Me
