Silence and Fear

Being a friend

Can sometimes mean

Having to stop

Not say a word:

Silence and fear

And all that lies

Inbetween them;

Those painful lies

And you, and you

Know exactly what

I think of it.

I’ll say no more

Not this or that

Or anything

But I know you

Can hear the sound

Of my words, my

Silence and fear.
