When you do not speak
It is silence.

I keep searching for words
that i want to hear
but don’t.

Even the four lettered ones would do
just to let me know you are there
with me and not away.

Your silence
becomes a drone
in my mind.

Breaks out into a moan
wanting to be touched

You remain silent
like the stone
that has no ears,
and look far far away
as if I am no longer there.

I am glad the mosquitoes are there .

I listen to their hum
and squash them on my palm
with a vengeance.

    Sharp and visceral.This oozes overtones of Film-Noir.A taut ,simmering psychological drama nearing boiling point.If this were a template for a screenplay,it would need Bette Davis or Joan Crawford in the lead role.
