Why the Silence?

Why the silence?
Why can’t you just say something?
Anything?

I know that I too have been silent
but it’s hard to keep speaking
when I’m not sure you’re listening

But maybe that’s why you’ve been silent
maybe you have spoken, maybe you have shouted
only to have your words fall upon my deaf ears

Forgive my silence
and I will forgive yours
Heal my ears
and speak again
or shout
or scream
or whisper

I am trying to listen
