Silent Hours

Don’t get sick of me, just stay here.

Don’t scream the truth, just whisper in my ear.

Conversations end, and voices seem to stop.

I replied 18 hours ago, and sent another message at 6 o’clock.

But still I don’t get an answer from you, and I begin to think what I could’ve possibly done wrong.

I don’t want to bother you and keep saying things, but it feels like it’s been so long.

I cease to get answers from anyone else, and the truth I have yet to find.

I beg you to speak to me again, please don’t leave me behind.

I plead and plead, I’m on my knees.

I couldn’t imagine if you forgot about me.

I don’t want a one word answer, if that’s the case then don’t bother.

I want to read a paragraph, a response I’d never get from any other.

I’ll wait a few more hours, and see if my circumstance will change.

Maybe you just haven’t answered because you’re out of range.

Promise not to leave me speechless, I can’t stand the sound of being alone.

Thoughts take over to erase the silence, and I pray that you’d just come back home.

Talk to me again, I want to hear your voice.

I can’t stop thinking of the way we left off, it’s like I don’t have a choice.

But if I had to make a choice I’d choose you; that’s always the way it will be.

Just ignore the ignorant things I say, and please reply to me.
