Just Silence

Hanging thick between us,
A curtain of black velvet,
Seeming to block everything;
My attempts at happiness are futile and unseen
Your laughter muffled but…

Distinctly fake.
Our friendship lacks truth,
A vulgarity of trust
Has corrupted what used to be-
Armed with fingers bloodied by past crimes
Sowed this curtain of black
For redemption or…

Just Silence
