A poem I wrote today about talking in the dark

I wrote this when the phrase “quiet and not talking” popped into my head and I’m pretty pleased with it.

Quiet and Not Talking

when we sit like this

in the dark

quiet and not talking

I can almost pretend you’ll understand


if I say


“Let’s be more than friends.”


then you turn on the lights

and smile at me

before calling someone

you like

more than me


and I remember pretending

can’t make something
