The Silence by Siphiwe Hlongwane

Poem

The silence
Between the words
You spoke
Was the only truth
You’ve ever told
Everything else
You’ve ever said
You never meant
You always did
What you never said
Said everything you never did
But still I stayed
I stayed
For the silent moments
When we become like strangers
Meeting for the first time
I fell in love with you more
Again
And again
With you were quiet
I should have told you
To say nothing at all
Look at us now
So much distance
When we are holding hands
Like lovers
In love
A lie
