Deafening Silence


Mark Mitchell

Deafening silence between us
Tension, pain, unresolved issues, storm clouds
Going through the motions of daily life
Stress, headaches, taking each other for granted
Deafening silence between us

What happened to the communication?
It used to be so good, as long as youíre the one talking
When I dared complain, you pulled back, silence
My quiet demeanor has spoiled you dear wife
Deafening silence between us

Iím tired of playing chess
Itís time to listen to me
Weíve got many years ahead of us
I donít want them in misery
Honest, two-way communication between us
