Your Silence
by Aparna Chatterjee
Bookmark and Share
  I have spoken long enough
I have spoken well enough
Now let me be silent
And see how Silence speaks
Hear the words unspoken
For you could never speak
And whenever I asked you
All I could ever hear, was:
Your Silence'

Yes, that very Silence of yours
Which sucked all my life out
making me feel miserable
day in and day out
Still I kept holding on,
hoping on and hanging on'
If you could ever speak

Yet you never spoke up
Instead, offered me a challenge
A challenge to a broken heart?
A challenge to a defeated soul?
Oh! How Ruthless you could be'

And still you ever want me
To keep hearing your silence
And make some meaning of it all
I told you long before
Silence never works for me
I am a woman of words'
It might work well for you
So be it, my love'
If that is what you call 'friendship'

Let you be silent
And me be too
And we can still remain 'friends'
For if you speak
And I speak too
Who knows, One day
We might become foes'
And I would rather die
A Friend of yours
Than choose to be a Foe.
