A Silent Volcano

When you were hurting me
I didn't show my agony
So does that mean
I didn't feel pain?

When you were leaving forever
I hadn't shown my tears
So does that mean
I had not cried?

When you were unresponsive
I didn't show my panic
So does that mean
I was not hurt?

And when I retained my silence
With apparent calm and serene
So does that mean
I didn't love and care?

While falling apart within
With the passage of time
All this created a silent volcano
Tonnes of lava and magma inside
My only wish and endeavour
It shouldn't reach you ever.
