Silent SeparationYou are speaking to me,
But when was it we stopped talking?
You hear me
When was it you quit listening for me?
You touch me,
When was it you stopped feeling me?
You see me
When was it that you quit looking?
You lie next to me
When was you quit sleeping with me?
You make plans with me
When was it you quit dreaming with me?
You laugh at me, the things I do,
When was it you quit laughing with me?
You will smile for me
When was it you stopped smiling at me, because of me?
You will sit next to me
But you no longer sit with me.
You'll ask about my day
But won't you ask about me?
You'll say you love me
But won't you tell me why?
When did that secret we shared die?
When did it slip away?
I am your wife
When did I stop being your girl?
You are standing next to me,
But when was it that you left me?
