When there isn’t me, there’s no us.

July 30, 2019

Have you noticed?

When I don’t talk,
There’s silence between us.

When I don’t call,
There’s distance.

When I don’t text,
We run out of words.

Have you noticed?

When I don’t ask
There’s no openness.

When I don’t show affection
None of us cares.

When I don’t pray
There’s no amen.

Darling, have you noticed?
That I’m the one dating us.

    Reminds me of hazel in John Green’s the fault in our star, though the story is different but she kinda realised there was no longer a “us” after Gus’ death. Loll, OK. I play too much.
    Nice one tho..

    Awwwnnn this is sadly true of some relationships.

    With time the one who tries to keep them together, gets tired of being the glued.
    Beautiful poem Cirphrank
