    i haven't heard from you in a while--haven't laughed or joked with you--i assume you have been busy--or maybe you just like it this way--less stress, less likely to cause you any duress--i'm okay with it for the most part--since we decided to call it quits--i no longer feel as though we are as close--no teasing, no laughter, no coveted secrets--i was only your part time lover--now i lie by the wayside--i receive the constant "i'm so busy, so before you embarass yourself" replies--and i don't know if that's good or bad--only that what's become of us has made me sad--you say you don't put others onto a pedestal--but rumor has it you call her your queen, what a metaphor, for the one that's not your wife i mean--meanwhile i was the slu-ut that licked you clean--yeah, and i haven't heard from you in a while--haven't laughed or joked with you--i wonder if i have crossed your mind at all--but i'm sure you'll only say...don't ask questions you don't want the answer to--and when i ask questions that I DO want the answer to--you simply do not reply--i--am in a quiet place, healing once again from our rewind--trying to discover what makes me special--since discourse and discontent seem to lead you by the nose--i tried to step in and save you--and ended up needing to be saved myself--and--after all of that hard work we agreed--to set me free--but now you do not even speak---now it's just the quiet sound of water running in a quiet stream--so peaceful--that you don't even hear me scream.

    I feel your emotions

    redlady, Those silent screams are something else but in the mean time the time to let go and move on for your beauty is being watched, because flowers will always bloom.

    what is poetry...if not the ability to voice your feelings and emotions in a way that is artistic, yet , others can relate to it too...thank you for relating to this piece.
