Know That

Know that your silence is not mine
For silences can speak
To those who will listen
And care
To be there

Know that my silence is not mine
It does not speak
Or reach out at all
It abides
In state

Know that these silences
Hold the words
In abeyance
For the day
Is late

Know that you will only have to call
Call sure and soft
For those who are yours
Their love
Does not abate

Know that there will not be a word
Or a sound in the space
That stands
Between us
Silent, as a gate

Know that this that is there
Carries no seed but
An unsaid promise
To be there
In Need

Know this too, that the silence
Will be buried deep
Beyond the seen
The seal unbroken
Even in deed

(Simplify? “I’m not going to talk to you, if you need help call, I’ll help but I’ll still not talk to you”)
